i have a couple extra 9006 silver star bulbs from my suburban. I wanted to see about putting them into my CTS.

Anybody know if the 9006s will fit in the cts?

I just ordered some 9006 Highhawks from Amazon for our SLS. According to the site, neither the Nighthawk 9006 nor Silverstar 9006 will fit the 04 CTS. Sorry.

the difference is that the 9006 has a 90 degree angle on the back end of the hook up and the 9006xs goes straight... both will hook up to a 9006 socket, but they use the 9006xs for spots that the 9006 will be tight on space-clearance.

so they will fit in the housing correct?

i figured the 90 degree bend would save space as in it looks like the area outside the housing is about the same size so now the harness will come from an angle versus straight on.

i can confirm that a 90º angled bulb fits in the high beam spot (9005).

that is all i am able to confirm.

I was so confused about this same topic.
When you search what kind of lights our cars have, it comes back as 9006xs, yet 9006 fits just fine.
I put 9006 in my car, works great.
