questions for those who have replaced hi beams with hid

I've got HID low beams, so my DRL are from the hi-beams at lower intensity (9v vs 12v, I believe).

Why would that be? Thinking about it, I don't see what difference it would make and it would be much easier to do before the coils go on the car.

I didn't think installing a front sway was that difficult. Time consuming because of the plastic you have to remove underneath, but not that difficult.

The springs might settle a bit. If you plan to lower your car so much that you risk rubbing, then don't lower it quite that much to begin with. But I don't see any reason you couldn't start by...

So, maybe I am misunderstanding.

They created a full report.
