Thanks much to everyone ... will get on it ... as life would have it, I lost the low beam element two days ago. Aacck ... had to replace it prior to getting into this ... seems like my timing is always about a month off!
FYI ... I tried the bluer versions of the 9004 bulbs ... seems a bit whiter and brighter, but not blue. Available at Walmart.
