    Default Aftermarket headlight lens / housing VS OEM

    My headlights on my 1995 K2500 are kinda foggy and yellowed, just wandering if anyone has any experience with one of the many replacements offered on ebay? My drivers side also has a broken adjuster, so I need to replace at least that side. I did not price a GM one yet, anyone have a P/N by chance?? But if these ebay jobs are cheap Chinese knockoffs that will turn yellow and crack in a short time maybe I just want to avoid them altogether. I could always junkyard a used one.

    One other thing my high beams don't point anywhere near where they should, since the light housings are all one piece, I'm thinking the high beam bulb is either bad or bent, anyone see this before?

    I love the light my 1999 Trans Am puts out, so I'm thinking my truck should light up the road just as well. All my older cars and trucks had old time sealed beams in them.

    i just ordered a set from them ..most of the knockoffs on ebay are those cheap imitations and the lights are h3 instead of what you are using

    I checked at autopartswarehouse and they list several options ranging from $49.95-$905 and even projector headlights. it just depends on your budget. I purchased a driver's side heated mirror for my wife's Suburban for around $45 and the dealer wanted over $300 and it looks and works perfectly like an OEM replacement.

    Just remember though, you get what you pay for
