are the lenses pitted or sandblasted? or could it just need to be cleaned inside. you could try taking the lights off your car and soaking the inside with some kind of cleaning material or car wash soap. probably take a air hose to em to prevent water spots after.
man, why didn't you just get BLAZER 3200s??

, are they 880'*? When I changed my drivin' lights I discovered that the lights caused little "cracks" on my plastic light housing, the light was actually too bright for the plastic and it started to melt it, I didn't buy the lights with that Brown stuff over the front of the light, I guess the brown protects the light housing from getting too hot and melting the plastic, If u notice thou It'* always one light just a little "Brighter" than the other, a lot of people who drive with foglights on in tha day time have one brighter than tha other(Cadillac is well known for this) I guess one side is just a little brighter than tha other,

I have the same problem, although i havent had time to even look at them. Check your aiming too i found mine was WAY off after i replaced them. The right was pointed high and past the beam of the left light to the left (WAY off to the left) . and the left light was slightly right. Havent fixed those yet. How much are the blazer'*? that could be a fun investment to fix my fogs ....

the driver'* side is supposed to be dimmer so that you don't blind oncoming traffic... all of our bonneville'* were like this. Do NOT aim your lights any old way so that you can see the best. most often aiming them so you can see the best blinds everyone else that is driving towards you. There are certain procedures you must take to aim them properly. Don't mean to sound like an *** here, just letting you know incase a non forgiving cop decides to pull you over.
