I have a 1997 k1500 silverado. Recently noticed the headlights are
getting dim (or I am getting old). Checked the alignment per the service
manual (lights pointed at flat surface). The headlights do not have a good
pattern. Very spread out.
Thinking of changing bulbs to the Sylvania silstar. The headlight adjustment
gear (left side , up down) is also stripped (never has been touched). Want
to change the factory housings to APC diamond.
I noticed on mine ( 92 silverado ) that when I went from the low
profile tires to the standard 235/75/15 series the amount of
brightness displayed on the road surface was lessened because of the
I *think* I saw a news item that some states were going to outlaw the mod to
HID. Something about leaving the factory lamps intact. I run silverstars,
too, and the brightness is about the same.
