    Greetings Robert,
    In case you were still looking for the gears for your headlights...GMHTP did an article a few years back with the install as well as the source for the brass (now aluminum) gears.

    Hope that helps out!

    they are very easy to install. The problem is finding a spot to mount the ballast. Im running DDMs 35w 5k and love em. Had them for about a year or a little longer, lows and fogs.

    question about HIDs. Will these create more heat that will affect the OEM fog light housings?

    They do get pretty darn hot.. Some people run into issues, but not all. Theres no guarantee one way or another.
