OEM Xenon ' Self Adjusting ' Headlamp Issues

My OEM Xenons are not adjusting after I installed H&R lowering springs. Is there a sensor / switch somewhere to calibrate? The lights come on but don't raise up like they used to before I put the springs on.

mrmdmoore... xenons on my '97 are controlled by a front and rear sensor module. The front one is on the inside passenger side fender skirt near the oil filter housing. (I haven't looked for the rear one but Alldata has a diagram) It is a potentiometer with a pitman arm assembly that connects to a suspension member; it monitors vehicle height and sends a signal to the headlight adjustment motor. Check for a disconnected mechanical link on front and rear sensor.
