    Where do you have your ground wires grounded? Also where are the ballasts mounted? I heard 1 other person had static as well and he was grounded to the antenna ground. Then grounded the wires to the battery and that fixed it. Let me know :)

    I am trying to install my H10 fog kit from GB but am having a hard time getting the bulb to mount in the stock housing. The wing clips on the bulbs will not line up with the stock mounts so I can twist them secure in place. Are they not supposed to lock in place like stock bulbs. Help would be awesome.

    Yea some people have some wiggling and working to get the H10 bulb into the factory housing. I don't know why but others have no problems at all. Maybe there are slight differences in some housings than others? But with a little patience it will get in. :)

    Passenger side went in fine for me but I had a hard time with the driver side also. Not sure what it is but it will go in. Good luck.
