if you bought a new bulb,only for the left side,it may be a different bulb than what is on the right side.example:
silver star ultra,compared to a regular stock halogen,will be different in brightness.thats why everyone should replace in pairs.the bulb you need is a 9007,hi-lo both, in one.if this is what happened.
