You need whichever kit is appropriate for your low beam bulb. Sylvania has a nice bulb chart/lookup feature on their website.

H11 bulb is what's listed in Sylvania's bulb guide for your model year with halogen high and low beams.

Question...I just got my kit and im going to hook up tonight. On each bulb there is wires connect with plugs that go into the two wires coming from ballast. However next two It is two wires with pins and opposite end has a plug. Do I need this.? also does the wire harness get hooked directly into the +/- on battery? im use to cheap ebay ones. I want to make sure I hook up right.

Read the instructions.

It should be battery-fuse-relay-ballasts-headlights and another loop from stock headlight wires-relay to trigger the relay.

A. There are separate instructions for the relay harness that plainly answer your question. They're available on TRS' website.

B. The plug you mention is on the driver side of the relay harness, and plugs into the stock headlight plug. That gives your relays signal to energize.

C. The positive lead of the relay harness(fused end) connects to the positive post on your battery. Each end of the relay harness near the ballast has a ground wire, and these ground directly to chassis.
