I believe the high beam uses 9005 or H7, not 100% sure.

If you have one 9006 bulb "laying around" it might not be worth it to try to use it, esepcially if it's been poorly handled since you've had it. A poorly handled halogen bulb can burst while in operation.

Also, it's best to replace bulbs in pairs to they look the same.

no, a 9006 bulb will not work in your headlights b/c it requires H7 bulb, which is a completely different size bulb.

it will work in your fogs, which are 9006.
