Here's the thing - You have +12V from the fuse to the bulb common terminal, and then through the filament, through the wiring to the switch and then to ground - assuming that the high beam works, we can eliminate the +12v feed and the fuses - your problem HAS to be the bulbs, the wiring or the switch.

You have replaced the bulbs - that leaves the wiring and the switch - find the headlight wiring where it connects to the switch, you should have a red and a red & white wire - ground them one at a time - the red should be high beam, the red & white low beam.

If the lamps do not light the problem is between the connecting you're working at and the lights, if they do light the problem is between the connector and the switch.
