question about ddm hid kit install

I'm getting ready to install the ddm kit on my 02 lt and hoping that someone thats installed this can tell me if I need to use the spacer thats supplied with the bulb to keep it from going to far into the housing?

No. At least I didn't on my 05 so I would assuem it is the same. I had to break that clear and black piece off. Little bit of a pain, just be carefull not to break the bulb or cut a wire in the process. I actuall called them to make sure.

Can someone please tell me what DDM product I need to purchase for my 03 LT. I would like to do low and hight beams if possible.

Have a great ride,

Re: question about ddm hid kit install

David,
I hope you do realize that if you install high-beam HID's, you will not be able to "flash" your light at oncoming traffic. HID's take a few seconds to warm up.

IMHO, the best bet is HID low beam and halogen high beam. Use white-color halogens to match to the HID's - for me Sylvania Silverstars worked best.
