No, you don't have torsion bars, you have coil springs

Those are the control arm bolts that hold them to the frame. Tightening them won't do anything except possibly ruin the bushings.

I'm leaning this way. Hard to tell really but they do look like the ABS sensor plugs to me.

Trace your lines. Its possible your truck only has RABS so in that case you wouldn't get a light.

H10 would be for a 9145 bulb. 98-00's have 9006 bulbs for the fog lights but the plugs look similar. Now the one you posted Andrew, doesn't look like it would work for any bulb i've seen anyway. Im going to have to go with the ABS as well.

me too lol, the connections for the fog harness lead to an h10 style plug direct to the light, it doesnt have a split it it for that style of plug anywhere i can place in my mind. im still thinking your abs sensors were left in the old spindles or you never had them at all. did you reinstall front abs sensors in the new spindles? if so it doesnt look like you hooked them up?

Easy way to check, pull your radio bezel and see if there is a spot for a factory fog light switch, if so it's for fogs, if not then it's front ABS!
