Since subies are ground switched, I wonder if the LED polarity is backwards.....espescially on the outers with hi/lo. you could make a relay bank triggered by the subie wiring but sending power to bulbs with + switching.
Honestly I am a bit confused by your description.
What excactly is your setup?

So either one of the high beam lamps has gone bad and is creating feedback or a short, or your high beam switch is going bad.

[rant] Ugh, those "15-LED Chinese" lamps are going to be worse for night vision than your original headlamps. You REALLY should only upgrade to LED 4"x6" lamps from reputable companies who actually design their products for improved night vision. [/rant]

Jono, there is a lot more to proper lighting than a simple "eye test".
I'm confident enough in that statement that if you send me one of your lamps and I'll provide a stock halogen lamp. If those eBay-specials out perform the factory halogen lamp in terms of proper distribution of light, beam cutoff, build quality, durability or anything except for total lumens produced, I will send you $250 USD via paypal.
