    Alright guys theres been a few reports that when people drive over bumps, the light wobbles/shakes.

    Cause:

    This is a stock reflector bowl thing. Because the level motors need to move up and down, the reflectors bowls need some sort of play in it to achieve the motion.

    When the projectors are mounted, they are a bit heavy so the light wobble is slight more noticeable. I personally have noticed it but its not much of an issue for me as I barely see the lights shake.

    Understand that this is something you will have to deal with regarding retrofits. I have done about 100 retrofits since last year, only about 3 people complained about the wobble.

    Heres a video on the play in the stock reflector bowl.

    All the retrofits I've owned from my lowered hondas to the tundra has been shakey.. I think for the most part, my concern was running the tundra hard through some whoops or just some nasty trails (would that be a concern?). Haven't seen or heard any issues yet with people actual having projectors flop off unless it was an installation error.

    You dont have to worry about projectors falling off. They wont ever fall off. JB weld is literally like welding it on. Though the projectors can be removed after jb welding on, its extremely difficult and takes a while to get them off. I have to remove a few and boy what a PITA!
