i dont have a link, but i have the slim ballast HID's on my truck.

pretty much any HID kit you buy will work the same way. i have had several now. back when i first got HID's for my grand prix, i bought really expensive brand name ones, and they lasted forever. but the cheapies seem to do the same job, for cheaper. they will probably die sooner then the expensive ones, but the lower cost off sets that IMO.

just look for a seller with good feedback, and go from there.

I actually want to make one good posting thats easy to search for since HID seems to be a popular mod. doing an HID kit search brings up a buncha diffrent post that someone needs to sort through, which is awesome, I may write my own guide from it when I get time to sit down. Currently doing a PC system build for cash towards new tires but thats a diffrent story all together

Maybe even get it sticky'd

this has been covered 100's of times. do a search. most any kit on ebay seems to work fine for people. Stay away from dual beam kits (my experience). single beam only is fine with HID cause its so bright.

only purchase from US sellers.

only purchase from US sellers with US warehouses and they ship from the US.

go low beam only....ebay hi/lo kits blow.

adjust your headlamp aim after install.

get a relay harness for it.

done.

Are you volunteering? Do it and I'll sticky it. I doubt most people have the time to do it for you but if you want it, knock yourself out.
