ps> my dad thinks that the bulbs need time to warm up so that they would fully match. i did not think so since they were all cold from the start and they were all turned on evenly at the same time. though i did not leave it on for long, i do not think this was the problem.

that could be, but if 1 out of the 4 is dim after awhile, not just at start up, it has everything to do with the wiring coming from the ballast, trust me i've seen it before
