nope!! Listen carefully. Alot of people and websites and car dealers etc etc will tell you that you either need a new core support or a "Headlight relocator kit". The kit is about as useful as a pet rock. It costs upwards of $50-$60 and the only thing you need in it are the 2 pieces of sheet metal that actually mount your lights in a different spot. Being the computer graphics god that I am:evilg:, I made a template for the things on Autocad. You can cut them yourself with a couple pieces of sheet metal and some tin snips. I will try to post it here, but it might be too big. Good Luck!

That's better than what I did with an old truck. I took an awl and made new holes for the grille wich worked good then i put headlight coversover the offset headlights. Didn't matter, looked good!
