Headlight adjustment springs

How are the two springs attached to the headlight bezel? I can figure out one of them (kind of), but it's like there are no other points to hook on the spring number two. Really been twisting brain over this today.

Pictures would be appreciated.

So there's just one spring for each headlight? There were 4 springs in total in the kit I bought (and 4 adjustment screws), but maybe it's universal?

There are two for each headlight. There should be a spring/adj screw opposing each other for up/down and side to side.

Yeah, that's my reasoning as well.

1973 454 Monte's spring is easy to locate. I just can't find a "logical" hook on for the second one. Can't really see anything opposite of the adjustment screw either.

Are you able to point it out on this picture?

From the look of it a second may not be necessary, since the adjustment screws and the existing spring are offset by 120 degrees from each other. The 4 piece kit is probably for the A bodies with rectangular lights.
