as long as its a 9006 for low they should work, just have to worry about them sealing good, sylvania makes some hid&lens assemblies, check into those

i have the exact lights and they work fine

the only aftermarket lights they will NOT work with is the "projector" ones. Most of the projector style use a H3 bulb instead of the stock bulb. the h3 bulb mounts way different and much smaller.

ebay... I smashed up the projector style ones I had on the truck, along with the rest of the front end, which is why the hood is black (oem GM hood from a black truck) and the bumper still has a dent in it. Ended up repairing it all for roughly $700 :D (besides bumper, plan on SS cover in future, so didnt bother replacing).

There good lights but there quality is a little on the low side. I recieved mine with a broken plastic mount on one headlight. Picked up some "Plastic Welder" 2 part epoxy and fixed it. put them in and shut the hood and the othe side broke in same spot :bawl: more epoxy... its was worth it though. beats paying $200-300 at stylin concepts etc for the same looking lights.

on a side note, the sylvania's are nice, but not "that nice" for $1000 a pair :read:
