    If I were you, I'd replace them out with a Sealed Beam Conversion Headlamp kit! A place called Eurolights sells them, and they are great quality! It's made to convert standard sealed beams to where you can put any bulbs you want in them...even HID's!

    Here's what they looked like on my old '95 with an 8000k HID kit:







    I no longer need this set, as I no longer have the car, so if you need them...PM me

    FWIW- Sylvania sealed beam lights are a quick fix, but for the price ($25 a bulb) you're 1/3 of the way to a full HID conversion. Given how long the HIDs will last, you'd spend way more on the Sylvania bulbs (not sure anyone else has had this, but I was going through Sylvania H1 bulbs every 3 months in my wife's old Lancer). Just save your money and get the conversion from Eurolights ($80 for low beams and another $80 for high beams) and then get the HID kits.

    I have to agree with the Eurolights option. I got the sealed-beam conversion kit for my Formula back in '02 and I've been very happy with them. Unfortunately the sealed-beam kit lenses are glass, just like the factory lenses, so a couple of mine have been seriously cracked by flying stones, etc. over the years. Dirt and water have gotten into them and there's a good quarter-inch of dirt collected in the bottom. I'm not complaining, though -- 7 years is a good run for such high-output bulbs and glass is a lot easier to clean than plastic.

    I'm about to go ahead and order a new set this weekend!

    can you just take some HID bulbs and swap them out in an 02 camaro or are there any wire replacings or what?

    The HID "kit" will come with a ballast, bulb, and wiring. There are kits that let you direct swap into you car- the hardest part is finding a place to mount the ballast.

    There are a couple types of kits- one will be a direct plug in and the other will require you to run a wire off the battery. I had HID kits on my Yukon (with projector headlamps) and on my Lancer- both were direct plug in kits and I never had a problem with them. I got them off eBay and used the 6000k bulbs (those are the brightest, whitest light- the higher the temp the bluer the light, but there is a loss in the reach of the beam).

    My only problem with the kits is that the light is dispersed by the stock headlamp so that it gets a bit washed out (this was the way it was in my Lancer- the projector beam in my Yukon made those lights RIDICULOUSLY powerful). I think this had to do wth the way the reflectors were designed in the Lancer's headlight so I'm curious to see how it works with the Eurolights conversion kit.

    10000k will look deep blue. When I had my Yukon, I had to aim the lights down a bit because it was so bright it looked like I was driving with the high beams on all the time. Great for me- painful for all oncoming traffic. The Lancer wasn't so bad because it didn't have projector beams.
