Question about Subaru Cars & Trucks
1. HEADLIGHT BEAM ADJUSTMENT
Turn off the light before adjusting the headlight beam level. If it is necessary to inspect the beam level, do not keep the light on for two min- utes or more.
Before checking the headlight beam level, be sure of the following:
• Check the area around the headlight for any scratches, damage or other types of deformation.
• Make sure that the vehicle is parked on a level surface.
• Make sure that the inflation pressure of tires are correct.
• Make sure that the vehicle fuel tank is full.
1) Bounce the vehicle two to three times to normal- ize the suspension.
2) Make certain that someone is seated in the driv- er's seat.
3) Measure the distance between the low beam bulb centers, and the height of the bulb center

on each headlamp assembly, there will be either one or two plastic nuts that you can turn.
If you only have one nut on each, that will adjust the vertical aim of the headlights.
If you have two nuts on each, one will adjust the vertical and the other will adjust the horizontal.
Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)
If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

Not sure for a subaru lagacy, but most vehicles have a bolt, or screw behind, above, or right under the hood that is for adjusting the aim of the headlights. It will usually feel like it is free spinning when you turn it, and not doing anything, but it moves the lights very, very slow, so it can take several rotations to even notice a very small change.
Like I said, I am unsure for the Subaru Lagacy, but if it helps you, then great, if not, well I tried. :D Good Luck.

do the plugs yerself, on a turbo model they are awkward but worth saving your money. you need to take out the air box to do that side (off side in uk) get your plug socket 16mm, and fit it in to the plug (after you take off the leads!) then depending on length of your socket you may need an extention, i use the short swivel adaptor thingy!.. and slowly undo, ... gap to 0.7 - 0.8 on a turbo, 0.6 if your running high boost on a modded model, .............the other side (near side in uk) you got to take out the battery and the washer bottle, be careful with the pipework under the bottle and connections. .... there is not alot of room to change plugs on a 16valve subaru....so have a swear box and plasters ready lol....DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN!!!!!.... BECOMES A PROBLEM TO GET A BROKEN PLUG OUT ON THESE!...
