It was flecking b/c the headlight screw was loose so the whole headlight was vibrating making the bulb jump and vibrate every time i hit a bum so is it still the same thing ?

its most likely your ballast...ive replaced those things a lot...most of the time it is the ballast but be sure to check the bulb itsself...just an fyi...after mine kept messing up...we actually started securing the ballastwith doublesided tape and secured it a bit to make the bumps a bit easier for it to absorb...i have 22's so it feels everything...hope that helped you out..

I've had one DDM Tuning ballast fail, and they replaced it. Now every now and then the other fog light won't fire. If I turn them off/on, it will come on. I'm guessing the other ballast is on it's way out too.
