    The headlights on the Suburban are really, really awfully cloudy and yucky. I haven't tried to sand or polish them yet, but I can see that they're bad enough they'll never look new again.

    Saw these on Ebay, has anyone gotten them? I know there's a lot of just total crap on ebay motors so that's why i ask.

    There are a few guys on here with those but I have been unable to get a comment from them about these lights.

    Racheal, if you look in the Audio, Video & Electrical, the General Tech as well as the Appearance and Aftermarket forums there is a tremendous amount of information about projector headlights on the whole as well as a few thumbs up and thumbs down. As Vncj said, not all too many direct product reviews on particular lights themselves. When I was looking into getting projector lights these ones you show (but in all black, for my application) were the ones I was looking at installing and at the minimal price as compared to others I thought it would be a good gamble.

    Good luck and let us know how the lights turn out!

    a guy i work with bought some that looked just like that, the only difference is that his were for a 98 and they werent projectors. he hasnt had them in for a month, and they already have condensation. they look ok, but emit low light, and are un able to adjust up or down

    You're better off keeping the OEM lights. I would go to Wal Mart and get the Crystal View kit for $20.00 and polish the lenses. They'll be like new. The CV kit has a clear coat that the others don't so it won't fog up again. And it has a lifetime warrantee.:happy:

    hmm ok, will that work better than a porter cable with rubbing compound? because that's what i was going to try after wetsanding with 2000 grit.

    If you do end up using the rubbing compound please let us/me know how it turns out.

    I bought a headlight cleaning compound from Can Tire(8.99), for the lights on my 97 chev, the lights where a little cleaner, I actually took some wet 1500 grit sandpaper to them first to take the road grime and heavy yellowing off,then used the compound they where a little cleaner but the foggyness still seemed to be there, it did clean up the turn signal lights amazingly,they looked brand new.

    I have a set of Halo headlights for my C1500, and the only problem I've had with them was a little condensation build up in the turn signals due to the gasket not sitting right and water collecting in one corner lens that was due to a rock cracking the lens. IDK where you live, but I live in south La, a very very very humid place. SO as long as you treat them right, you should be find.
