Review & Install Video
Hey, guys, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, here with my review of these one-piece black headlights for 1994 to 1998 Mustangs. These headlights are going to be a good option for those guys out there that are looking for a stealthy look from a black headlight but without the issues that a smoked lens gives. These have an updated look in my opinion since they have that one-piece design, but they aren't loaded with a ton of extras, like accent lighting or halos, so you won't have any of the extra wiring or an exotic look with these headlights. But they're still going to make a difference looks-wise, and the clear lenses means that you'll be able to see even better at night.
So the '94-to-'98s came with a two-piece headlight from factory, and something as simple as switching over to a one-piece is gonna make a difference in the looks department. The factory headlights also have that ribbing on the back of the lenses so you get that boring stock look, and the clear lenses here are not only going to make for clear visibility at night, but they're also going to totally change the looks of the headlight. The clear lenses let you see the details in the housings, which you can see right here are black housings. The black housing is gonna give the aggressive look, and you can actually see some of the detail that's worked into the housings. These have the normal reflection around the main headlamps, but you can see how the housing breaks up around the turn signals, which makes for a really cool look, both when the lights are on, and when they're off. The black housings also give the light something to really stand out against, so if you've got all your lights on, you can see the breakup design between the main bulb and the side marker and the reflector.
The headlights are gonna come with this weatherstripping on them. My only nitpick with these lights is that this does look a little big to me. Feel like it might be hard to fit when you're trying to install these, or like it might stick out a bit far once the lights are installed. It could take just a little bit of muscling to get this tucked in under the fender, and I would just make sure that it's on the headlight securely before trying to install. You can always glue it down if it's not, and you can see even these on the table right here, this isn't on here very well. As far as price, one-piece headlights do tend to cost more than the two-piece headlights, but since these don't have halos or any of that extra stuff, these are gonna cost a little bit less than some of those other options.
You're looking at spending between $150 and $200 for these, and if that's a little bit expensive for you, then there are some other options on the site that are less expensive. When it comes to the install, you can expect to spend about 45 minutes, and I'm going to call this a one out of three wrenches on the scale. You don't have to worry about any wiring, but I will say that these do not come with replacement bulbs, so I would suggest replacing your bulbs when you go to install these. You're already in the area, and it's only going to help you out. I'd also stress running a bead of silicone around the housings where the lenses meet, so make sure you don't have any condensation issues.
There isn't a whole lot to getting headlights into an SN95, just some tabs, and bolts, so it doesn't get much easier. Once the old headlights are out, you can install the new lights with the new bulbs if you've got them, and keep in mind that you might have to aim these after the install if you want the best view at night, but the adjustment process isn't difficult either. Wrapping this up, these are black, one-piece headlights that have a black housing for a stealthy look, with clear lenses for style and visibility. They're easy to install, and you can check them out more online for yourself. And for all things Mustang, keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.
