Default LED light bulbs

I installed a set of Cree LED light bulbs into stock headlight assembly. The lights shine almost straight down reflecting off the inside top or roof of the housing. They don't seem to catch enough of the inside deflector to project forward. The lights are very bright and work well only when I have the brights on. Any ideas on what I should do.

Go back to factory halogens...

The technology for aftermarket LED headlights just isn't up to par with HIDs or halogens...
