bend your stock brackets to make them fit.. it should only be like 1/4" inch

yeah they stock brackets come out with 2 bolts that you get at from underneath... much easier out of the car!

lol thats a long drive.

thats the problem in having is that the sockets i have arent deep enough. and the one person that has tools doesnt have a toolbox he just puts all his tools on the ground and it would take for ever to find the right one. so i need another idea to get the bolts off.

o and the wires do i just match the new to the old? is the stock ground wire work for the new lights ground?

you need to get the stockers off??

lay under the car with your metric sockets and a long extension and unscrew them from the car.
