Im shooting a Nikon D7000 with the stock 18-105mm lens. i went out to get lightning pics the other night and the lens would not focus (tried to focus on a silhouette of a tree). I tried to put both the camera and lens in in manaul mode and it still doesnt look sharp..Any tips ?

What do you mean by "it doesn't look sharp"? Do you mean looking through the VF while focusing or images taken don't look sharp? Does the lens normally work OK and just not working in the dark?

The best way to shoot lightning is to set the focus to infinity and use a lighting trigger.. Not that that was what you were asking :)

Can you post up a sample?
