I put silverstar bulbs in and adjusted the beam angle up a bit to compensate for the rake.

Silverstars or any other brand of high performance headlight do make a difference. I run Silverstar in my fog lights also.

Re: Head lights on 2008 laerado

I bought Philips CrystalVision Ultra bulbs low and high beams. I love them. Very happy with them and people always ask me what kind I have because of how well they light the road. Like $50 total for both off Amazon when I ordered mine.

Swap in HIR bulbs. Don't put HID bulbs in halogen reflector housings.

Re: Head lights on 2008 laerado

Do the WKs have a separate bulb for low beam and high beam? So I have to buy one twin pack for the low beams and then another twin pack for the high beams? Do you guys recommend replacing both the low & high beams?

If you are thinking about buying these now is a good time to buy from AutoZone:

"Purchase a Sylvania SilverStar Ultra Twin Pack between 10/21/14 and 11/17/14 and receive a $10 AutoZone Gift Card."

Hey $10 is $10 bucks that makes the twin pack $39!

Thanks for the help
