The problem is with the lamps material & lens.

Polycarbonate has yellowed and oxidizing to reduce translucency.

Poor lens design is common of stuff DOT approved over here.

I'm going to put in individual rectangular E-Code lamps in my 1996 Suburban. Will have to design and make my own mounting brackets.

If you go with any of the 4 on wiring kits, be careful not to put in over watt bulbs. The plastic will potentially melt and catch on fire.

Agree with Bob to use two relays, both for the redundancy if one should fail and that it will lessen the voltage drop.
