The stock fogs on my 92 are in pretty descent shape considering the age. No cracking, lenses are clear. Guess i got lucky.

The Navigators must be what I have. Got some Cyberwhites at WalMart for about $40. Very happy with them.

Default UPDATE!!!

Bought me a set of Navigator cyberwhites today. I can't wait to install them tomorrow. They look like there built pretty well so they should hold up.

The main reasons they'll do better:

1. They're a little smaller in diameter, which is of specific benefit to the SSE and SSEi (and newer SLE) as it allows more airflow to the bottom portion of the radiator.

2. The lenses are tempered glass, not plastic. No melting or pitting, but still possible to break.

3. The reflector assembly is designed to cast light to the sides, and focuses the light that would normally go up and down to these areas for better coverage where you need it. (It'* a compound reflector design).

4. They sit farther back in the recesses of your bumper than the stock lights, which further protects them from road rash.

5. The produce a brighter white for better visibility.

6. If you live in a foggy area, you can find yellow H3 bulbs to make them more suitable:

I would suggest a simple connector on the lamps so you can change back and forth from white in good weather to yellow in poor (potentially foggy) weather.
