Just gotta find time. I have OEM heads but want to grab the black aftermarket em heads to do the retrofit. Can't go back to clear/silver heads after having these on, car looks a lot better with a tinted headlight.Any luck on sourcing a retro so you can get rid of those pretend headlights ? Man alive, those things are unsafe, both for you and other drivers (especially ONCOMING traffic).
I'm not sure how involved a PNP upgrade would be to your existing "projectors".
So ... you do realize that you open up the headlights to do the retro right ? And you PAINT the shroud and reflector bowl once you have it opened ??Just gotta find time.

take a look at that open door.. had i parked correctly I'd have a fresh ding. I always take end spots and hug the line or wallYou should fix your parking skills, too. :wink
They "work" in the sense that they fit properly and project light.. but I wouldn't recommend them, if you look back in this thread you'll see the light beam pattern and how scattered it is as well as V-shaped on the road.did those headlights hold up did they work correctly???
Thanks for the detailed info. I'm going to play this one safe and go the dealership route. They quoted me $446 for both sides and i have a 20% coupon for service so I'll go that route, possibly call around to see if any other shops can beat it.It's the lower control arm bushing. You can buy it as just the lower control arm bushing if you have a press otherwise you can buy the complete lower control arm. If you just completely replace the lower control arms it's not too hard. May take a while dependent on the amount of rust and corrosion but it looks like you live where there is no salt.
To take the lower control arm off you need to pop the lower ball joint out of the lower control arm with a ball joint separator. Remove the sway bar endlinks. If they are OEM you may need to cut them off. The end links use an allen key to hold the bolt in place and it is easy to strip out.
Remove three large bolts. Two hold the control arm to the frame the third holds the strut to the lower arm. This bolt has a tendency to get rusted in place in which case penetrating oil and an impact should help. Worst case you need to cut it.
