I have an 89 1500 with later model headlight and I installed an HID kit today. It was a 6000k kit with HID for low beam and Halogen for the high beams. I lowered the headlight adjustment as low as it will go and so far i havent had anybody flash their brights at me. I was wondering if i should have removed the center pieces from the housing before installing the bulbs. I know a few people on here has converted over to hid's. What did yall do?

I did not remove them from mine when I installed HID lights on my 1800 the other day. They are super bright and I didn't adjust my height either but I may bc I did get flashed a few times already.

Without a doubt! I can't believe how much better I can see now. I have only had about 4 hours of night time riding in the past week since I installed them but so far so good.

I put the HID's on my 94 1500. I didn't even have to lower the angle of the beams, they where perfect. You don't have to remove anything but theo old bulbs.

Ride safe,

Thanks for the replies, So far I like them. One thing I noticed about the halogen high-beams is that they are not that bright. The bulbs are side by side instead of over and under. When I turn my lights on bright it shines to the right a little more instead up high.

Are you sure you got them installed them correctly? The high beam bulb should be below the low beam.

Thats what I thought too but the tabs will only let them go in one way.

This is the kit I bought, [ame]http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00COORCTM/ref=noref?ie=UTF8&psc=1&s=automotive[/ame]
I got it because it was cheap enough so if I didn't like it then I'm not out too much money. So far I like it.
