I know fords have a flickering problem with HIDs a lot, I think it has something to do with the ballast though I dont know much about HIDs

the flickering is caused by a hate to say it...but a "cheaper" brand i have ran ddm tunning for all of lights and no flickering at all. i would look at just investing in new ballast...sorry dude

oh boy....what kind of relay are you thinking about getting? YOU DO NOT NEED THE ERROR ELIMINATOR RELAY! just the main wiring harness, plus the hi/low converter (if you got that.)
yeah that quote kinda hold true for anything in life....
