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.

Just started to get the headlights out of the box , no problem, unwrapping was a problem the seals around side light was stuck to wrapping , I ended up putting silicone on the rubber part to hold it , While installing lights to the car the cheap plastic retainers provided did not stand a chance when tightening down to adjust I ended up putting bailing wire to hold them in place , I got one pointed to the sky and the other is what is I would post some pics but its jacked up One problem after another Not to mention the paint on the bumper cover, scratched from trying to ajust What happened to the regular u clips on theseHelpful (0)

look good, difficult to install
After dissembling the old ones, I couldn't install these myself. Had to take these to the local shop, (cost me $50) Instructions were worthless, horrible actually. Product does not come with clips, so make sure to save the old ones. As others have said, rubber molding, cheap and clunky. First mounting bolts you remove, are not used in the new product. Overall they do look good for the price. I recommend having a shop install themHelpful (0)

Not overly thrilled with them. The molding was a pain to secure....had to use glue. Instructions did not indicate which mounts went where on the headlights themselves. Also there is no instructions on adjusting them, out of the three support mounts, which is horizontal and vertical???Helpful (0)

These head lights look amazing, they are clear. Have good visibility, and seem to be made well for the price. The fit wasn't the best but that's to be expected on one piece headlights on a 95. The rubber was waving at everyone going down the highway, but with some good glue that isn't affected as much by heat they stick good.Helpful (0)

Great look, less great to install
These lights look awesome! The install was not as easy as claimed. I'm pretty handy but had issues getting them to fit snug. I needed some help from a mechanic friend to finalize it. It may be because the hood and bumper are aftermarket but should not have been so much "fun".Helpful (0)
Why are these headlights named "Euro"? does that mean they project an european (asymmetric) light beam??
will these fit without any extra kits or parts?
Yes these will fit without any extra parts or kits
Are these DOT approved?
These have not been tested for DOT compliance.
With a conversion kit, these should hold the LED bulbs as well?
How do you adjust headlights?
There are hex head bolts located on the back of the headlights that will allow you to adjust the beam.
Yes, these Axial One-Piece Black Headlights do come with the weatherstripping around the outside of the lights.
The Axial One-Piece Black Headlights will include the fender to light weatherstripping.
Yes, occasionally this can happen with our headlights. However, there is a simple fix if you find yourself in a situation with moisture in the headlights. Simply let them dry completely, and then grab some clear silicone at a local auto parts store and make a silicone boarder around the headlights, effectively sealing them. You can also use silicone immediately upon your initial install to prevent and chance of this happening as well.
Yes, these Headlights are still adjustable so that you can have the best visibility.
The part number for these headlights is 49905.
HIDs should mount but be careful, the heat that emits can melt the housing. I use the Sylvania ZXE headlight bulbs with them and they work and look great. I also use the slyvania silver star bulbs for my fogs.
Yes stock bulbs will work with these headlights.
