My shop used to have 5 T-12 (96" X 2 cfl) fixtures. I'm down to just 2 having replaced the others with 48" X 2 LED fixtures. The result...more/brighter light with smaller bulbs and less energy...and no buzzing or flickering! Smile | :)
Around the house, any new fixtures/bulbs will be LED. They cost a little more, but they don't burn hot (waste energy) and last longer. For just a little more, I can get a smart bulb controllable via one the three Alexas or smartphone/app.

Edit: My first inclination was to do what you are doing...keep the fixture and replace the bulb with led. The only kits I could find for 96'' bulbs with the right tips were outrageously expensive, especially considering I wanted to do them all. The complete 48" fixture was half the cost as a single replacement bulb and put out plenty of light so the old fixtures, ballasts and all, were sent to the landfill.
