Does anyone know where I could buy some new adjusters or am I just gonna have to make my own? I suppose I could try to find some broken lights on a junkyard car and hope the adjusters are OK. I don't see these lights very often though. They're usually gone by the time I come around.

If you're referring to the plastic inserts that take the ball end of the adjusters, I did manage to find some online.
I guess I get to make some. This should be fun. Have to dig into the old RC car parts bin and see if I can come up with some turnbuckles that will work. I'll put up some pics of what I come up with.
Scroll down to 95-7396-CP M11X12.5 Hole Headlamp Adjuster Nut
Toyota Camry '94/ - Headlamp Adjusting Nut. It's identical to the Subaru adjuster, although these made from a less durable clear-colored plastic. I have a few of these leftover if you don't want to buy a full bag.
I have not found adjuster rods, but these could be whipped up with a long screw, a ball bearing, and a blast from a welder or some JB-Weld...

I called up Toyota and they, surprisingly, had one in stock. So I went and looked and it's the right part just in black plastic rather than yellow. Their national warehouse had a dozen in stock so I ordered 5 more.
The metal hardware I think I can clean up with a wire brush so this should work out!
