Adjusting headlights?

The headlights on my wife's 2003 Yukon Denali are pointing at the ground. How do you adjust them up correctly? I removed headlight by removing the 2 pins and seen a long threaded stud on top of the housing. Not sure if thats the adjustment. I just want to make sure before I turn anything. I don't want to break anything... Tonight I put a deep scratch on the rear hatch, I forgot the hatch was open while shutting the garage door from the wall mount button.
:booboo

Yeah thats the problem! The air ride jacks the rear end up so high that the headlights point to the ground. I have been looking at a way to disable the air ride, but again I don't want to screw anything up. I even thought about trying to raise the front end to try and make it sit level. The only problem is the air ride probably would try to compensate and damage something.
