    Hey everyone.

    I hope I've posted this in the correct forum section. If not, please forgive me. I couldn't find the troubleshooting/problems section.

    Anyways, I own a 2000 Chevy Tahoe, of which the headlight (driver side) has gotten foggy. It's certainly not as transparent as the passenger side light. At first I wasn't sure why one was foggy and the other wasn't, but then I took a closer look at the foggy light and noticed a small crack on the outside casing. I believe this crack has allowed moisture to enter the light. I've heard of people restoring their headlights with special DIY kits, but I've decided to take the route of simply replacing the light with an aftermarket light from an online store. I found two sites that I particularly liked, but I'm unsure of whether or not they are legitimate businesses. Furthermore, I don't want to fall prey to a scam. Has anyone purchased from either of these sites and can verify that they are a legitimate business? One vendor sells the part for a lot higher of a price than the other, so I'm suspicious. Thanks in advance.

    I can't speak good or bad about these vendors as I have never dealt with them but your decision to replace is sound. The DIY kits for restoring headlights that I am familiar with are only good for external damage.
