    Hello my Chevy friends.
    I have a question about High Beam Headlight 9005, I have used my Tahoe2007 LTZ LED 9005 High Beam but they are just too long. Once installed, I can not screw my headlights anymore. They stuck to the back of the frame of the radiator grille
    How could you do that? I do not want to get up on the bracket, because I came back further with my headlight. That would not be wise. Do you have LED Lights in the United States LED with the 90 degree finish, so i could install the original lamps without having to cut anything.
    I have already installed HID kits in my low beams. But there was room for me. I am aware that the high beam HID Xenon is not good for the lifetime of the lights. Have not earned experience about that.

    Could you give me information or links where i can find parts they would fit without body frame work. Thanks to all for your help.

    I show you 2 pictures how my actually Lights are looking. And you could see i need more then 1,5" more Room to get my Headlight back in.
