morimoto xb led headlights

I just installed the xb led headlights from the retrofit source. The left headlight vibrates with road bumps. Its noticeable by cars in front of me---my son pointed it out to me when I was following him. So I informed the retrofit source and they quickly sent a replacement - great service! However this one is doing the same thing! Seems the projector(s) are loose in the headlight, I think. But anyway, has anyone experienced anything like this? I'm going to contact the retrofit source again, but .... By the way, the right side is rock solid.

I noticed the same thing. I can slap the light and see the beam jiggle. I guess I'll also contact them

When I HID projector retrofitted my stock headlights, they did the same thing.

I can see mine jiggle on the garage wall every time I start the engine and stop it. TRS sent a replacement which also jiggles so they are sending a third light. If that one isn't solid, I guess I'll live with it. Keep your receipt--if it fails or gets significantly worse, it has a five year warranty. But as I said in my first post, the right headlight is rock solid--no jiggle at all so you would expect they could get the left one solid. Maybe a manufacturing issue with this early build lot. Someone asked for pictures. I'm an old guy, no tech wiz and I don't know how. But I'll work on it.

I'm give them a call next week because these lights were sold at a premium and I do expect better

If he asked you for a PICTURE of something jiggling, I'd say he's the technologically challenged one

I'm sorry I misled you about the picture request. TRS did not ask for pictures. They took my return request without question. The picture request came from a member of this forum. He had not seen these headlights installed on a truck yet and asked for pics. Also, as I will, it would be good if you updated this thread with the results of your return with TRS. THANKS
