The DRL bulbs burn out a lot quicker than most since they burn hot.  Have you checked the bulbs first?  Replacement # is a 4114 for the correct ones.  I threw some $10 LED replacements in there and they held up reasonably well for about 8 months but one of them finally cratered when one of the contact legs broke loose from its solder joint, which can happen when they solder those stiff wires directly to the circuit boards inside the assembly, they get stressed when you shove 'em in the socket.

New headlights are a crapshoot.  Normally I'd say go with real GM but they're made in China now and the quality sucks, especially for the higher price.  They haze/yellow (and even peel) quickly, and in 2-3 years they'll look like ass with a bunch of tiny cracks you can't sand/polish out.

TYC is usually known for making decent quality aftermarket lenses; you can search the net for who has the best price on 'em.
