The Sylvania 4114LL is what they recommended at AutoZone when I bought mine.

Of course in the end I went with LEDs because I still believe the 4114 LL still burn out too quick. It also doesn't make sense to me that the 4114 bulbs have two elements in them when only one is used.

I'm still happy with these so far (since 9/2010):

No tools needed, and the small tube of dielectric grease costs about 5 dollars.

I wish it was this easy on the newer trucks. I could have my whole front end torn apart on my 02 in a few minutes....

Darn Acadias--you have to remove the front wheel and wheel well liner, and go in through the wheel well to get to the headlights!

I get home in a few days and will have the joy of doing this to install my HID's. Not looking forward to it :(

It makes perfect sense as to me why the bulb has two filaments. GM had a problem with DRL's. They beat up the supplier because the bulbs performed to GM's spec (I'm being sarcastic here). The supplier wanted to keep the business without increasing their cost of creating a special one filament, long life bulb (another part number). So some creative Electrical Engineer at the supplier offered the product you see and it came right off the shelf. A bulletin is written. Everybody wins. And of course GM continues to build trucks with the old part number and still beats up the supplier. LOL. I worked for a supplier. Can you tell?

FYI; Dielectric grease is a non conductive. NO-OX-ID "A-SPECIAL" is the electrical contact grease of choice for new electrical installations and maintenance. NO-OX-ID is an electrically conductive grease that keeps metals free from rust and corrosion.

In my 2004 Sierra, I put the Amber colored bulbs in for the DRL's not long after I bought it. It looks cool and they were still going strong 5 years later when I sold it in 2009. ( I realize this is an old thread, but saw it and decided to comment)

Did the same thing on my 04 a week after I bought it. Amber is more effectively seen than the standard color, in addition to looking cool.

3157LL ambers.
