If the bh's are hitting consistently, just move your pins.

Two questions have to be answered before you do anything else. Are your arrows the correct spine and is the bow tuned? If either of those are not a "yes", then that will be what you need to correct before you start moving anything as either of them will make broadhead tuning a nightmare—if not impossible.

If you are spined correctly and the bow is in tune you need to move the rest to bring the two to where they are impacting in the same place. Begin by moving the rest down in 1/16ths of an inch increments and/or move the rest to the left in 1/16ths of an inch increments. Only make one adjustment at a time, and I would start by moving the rest vertically. By moving one ,vertical or horizontal, it often affects the other.

After you have both impacting at the same point, then adjust your sight and you're done.

I would just switch back to rage if they worked.

Yes, you should have a verticle adjustment that will allow you to loosen a bolt and slide the rest launcher arm down.
