Replacing headlight bulbs

Hello!

Just looking for more help.. go figure haha.

Just put in new LED fog lights. LOVE them. But I'm trying to replace the old head light bulbs in the front to LED but have no idea what bulbs to get and how to replace them. I googled everything and couldnt find a thing. I know I'm supposed to have H13 lightbulbs but it doesn't clearly say which bulbs I need.

I would appreciate any help

There are no LED headlights. LED's don't produce enough light to be used as a safe headlight. Factory headlights are either halogen (you have this) or HID.
I assume you are looking for a "whiter and brighter" headlight to match your new LED fogs. I'd suggest buying an OEM HID conversion kit (expensive, difficult) or getting a brighter H13 replacement bulb. Sylvania SilverStar H13 bulbs are a good idea.

Thank you so much!

Oops I meant high performance lighting, not LED.. oops got confused, thanks My dad just picked up H13 "The brighter and whiter light" from walmart. And we're supposed to see tomorrow if they will fit in the light socket thing. So hopefully it does! Exciting! I just didn't know if those were okay to use and were the correct light.

I think AAC sells HOD bulbs, basically just really bright halogens, I guess if you already got the other bulbs then it's too late but were here to help

@DagoCountyGee --Are the HID kits a lot brighter?

@USAFboy -- Thats where I bought my Fog Light kit for my LS, I like AAC - I will check there also! I want halo's eventually. Thanks!
