No big problem, only with big bump stops! With Koni Yellows the suspension would be stiffer so I would not have any problem here.

thanks for all the great comments!

I was trying to install my 35w DDM Tuning slim ballasts with my 3000k today.... to bad... ballasts was DOA.
I'm trying to claim that with paypal...
Bulbs works, not the ballasts. (test the bulbs with my old DDM Tuning Apexcone ballasts)

I already ordered another kit from Canada for faster shipping. Took 3 weeks to receive my stuff from DDM. DDM Tuning shipped from China now!
A little disappointed from DDM Tuning. The box was not pretty well packaged.

Will see what's happen with DDM / Paypal.
Lifetime warranty on DOA ballasts.... need to pay more and wait longer to have HID running in my fogs if I return my ballasts... Shipping from canada to usa or china is expensive too...

I can't edit my post #10

it's all good with my ddm kit and my new other kit...

I only need to reverse the oem connector to get the power at the right place...

I order 9005 bulbs to put in my high beam (because I bought another kit for my fogs, thinking DDM ballasts were DOA)


Road test tonight to see if I like the yellow or if I put yellows stickers from ycart

I order 9005 bulbs to fit my new unused HID slim kit. 4300k for low and high, 3000k for the fogs. (I have 5000k for the low right now)

I will order some ycart stickers. It's yellow from inside the car,on the ground with the 3000k but not really yellow when you look at the car. The stickers will do the trick!
