Do d2R and d2S bulbs fit into the same socket? How are they different?

I just got hid lights and they seem to be all over the place and too high for the person driving in front of me (even after adjusting the light housing).

Will d2R bulbs fix that problem?
If so, wheres a good place to get them?

d2s is for projectors, d2r is for non projectors, but if your hid's are non oem type, chances are it's your beam pattern that's messed up

??? What exactly you got upgraded to? OEM Non xenon housing with after market xenon kit H7 adapter w/D2S bulb? or OEM Xenon projector housing with D2S Bulbs?

If you have OEM projector housing, D2S is the right bulbs for you, and maybe your focus is all messed up. If you are using an after market xenon conversion kit with H7 to D2S, then you will need a D2R bulb for your H7 housing.

i converted my h7 to a (custom) D2S housing because that's how it came. It is not projectors. I now have D2S bulbs in, but I was told to get some D2R bulbs. So youre saying there is no difference really with D2R and D2S right?
