Hey Zombie, found this hella great article and this wiring upgrade with relays might be something to consider using along with some Silver Stars. This shows for Camaros and Fireturds BUT easily adaptable to our models. I'm searching for my relays and wiring now.....

x2 on the above. i usually add driving lights too, the stock lights are mostly focoused in the lane in front of you. i drive alot of rural roads where you need to see the sides too. the cheap ones dont work, but oem gm ones are pretty decent, my 07 monte ones take the same 55w h11 bulb so i got the silverstars for all and its very bright and i did the wires so they come on with either high or low. they are also relatively cheap at the JY compared to if you bought aftermarket projector beams because most all gm cars this year range use the same housing. did the same to my 03

Damadtech, is there any type of modification that I would need to do with these or is it just plug in the existing wiring? I had a look at the link and there is a lot of options that I would have no clue as to what to select lol

If you are talking about the link I posted from DDM tuning, then I'll attach a pic of what you need.
You want either 5000k or 6000k, I went with 5000k because I wanted a more white type of light, as it helps me see better, the 6000k'* are more popular, but if you are getting them for better visibility then I recommend the 5000k'*

Also note what I said in my previous post, most likely you have reversed wiring like I have, which caused me to have to hook my 9006 part of the harness into the factory wiring backwards, if you have a multimeter you can check to see which wire is the 12v wire, then I could tell you how you need to plug into the harness.
I suggest getting a spare set of 35W bulbs if you can, mine have been going strong for a while, but if you had one blow out it would take a while to get a replacement from Japan.
