    yeah just the bulb. I bought silver stars for mine looks better i think. But i got my lil brother to put them in and i guessed he touched the tip on one or something, but any ways it lasted me a few months only so when i replaced it with a new one, the new one was clearly brighter...

    moral of the story...consider buying both of them and replacing them at the same time if you want it to look equal...but it didnt bother me much so i said f** it and just replaced one lol. Hope this helps lol

    Where a latex glove or anything that keeps the oil from your fingers off the bulb when installing them. If you get any finger prints on the bulbs, they will burn out quicker.

    i agree with northwooddavid to go ahead and replace them both with something better. . however i recommend pilots xenons. . cheaper than silverstars and look better imo

    +1 on the Silverstars.

    I have them in my fog lights, and they have been great. I've actually driven home a few times at night with just the fogs on because I didn't notice that the headlights weren't up, thats how bright they are.

    Use the stock bulb. Soon after I purchased my 1995 Trans Am (I'm owner # 3) about 5 years ago, had to replace one bulb. Turns out it was not the correct size and had over-heated the housing. By luck, the lens was OK and with a little wiggling got the replacement bulb in. Its been fine since.

    To remove the fog lamps takes a 10MM socket. The pins holding the lower valance pan (to use an old expression) just need the center button pulled out to gain access to the bolts.

    The work goes fast with the car on ramps.

    My two cents.
