    Review & Install Video

    Hey guys, Stephanie with, here with a review and install of Axial black one-piece headlights, fitting all 1987 to 1993 Fox body Mustangs. The Axial black one-piece headlights are going to be a good option for you if you're looking for the styling of a one-piece headlight and you want the dark look of a smoked headlight but without the sight issues that a tinted lens can bring. These headlights are what I consider a "no frills" headlight. They don't have any extra lighting, and they're more of an OE design than an aftermarket design. So they're also gonna be a good option for you if you aren't looking for any extra added accent lighting or styling from your headlights like some of the other options offer. So normally a Fox body Mustang would come with a three-piece headlight setup. Some people really like that look and some people don't. These headlights take the three-piece headlight design and mold it into a one-piece headlight. It's gonna have a subtly different look in the front end of the Fox body. As far as the styling goes, other than that one-piece design, these headlights have that black housing, which is nice in my opinion, for a few reasons. You still get the blacked out dark look from the headlights, but you get it without having to go with the tinted lens. That means that you get the style without the drawback of poor visibility. If anything, a fresh set of headlights and new bulbs are going to improve visibility if you're still running your factory components. The headlights don't have any additional or accent lighting either. You just have your three bulbs here, your main light, your turn signal, and your side marker. There is a little bit of a different design in the housing, which you can see for yourself. So these don't look like stock replacements, but they're still what I consider one of the more toned down options when it comes to headlights. Axial does make a headlight just like this one that comes with accent lighting if you wanted something a bit more from your headlights. I will say that the headlights are gonna come with this built-in top weather stripping, but they're not gonna come with new bulbs. Those you need to pick up separately, and you're looking at needing a 9,000 forward bulb. AmericanMuscle does carry these bulbs from both Raxiom and Sylvania if you're interested in a new set. When it comes to price, you can expect to pay a little over the $150 mark for these headlights. This is right in line with most other headlight options for the Fox body at this time, and these do come with a full one year warranty. And adding bulbs can cost another $40 or $50 depending on what brand you choose. When it comes to the install, you can plan on spending an hours time, and this is gonna be a one outta three wrenches in the difficulty meter. One thing I would consider doing is sealing the new headlights along the housing edges just to make sure you won't have any condensation issues later on. To start the install, you need to pull your stock headlights out and save the attaching nuts because you'll need them for the new headlights. Once the headlights are out, I would suggest cleaning up the headlight buckets while you have access. Next, you'll need to splice in the new connectors. Just take your time with the wiring and make sure you have solid connections. I'd recommend soldering in the connections and heat shrinking and taping everything back up once you're done. You can get your bulbs into the sockets, whether you're reusing your old bulbs or installing new ones. Slide the headlight into place and reinstall the nuts. The install will be the same for both sides, and then you're just looking at needing to adjust the headlights. You're gonna wanna make sure that the headlights are still gonna be accurate at night. You just need a Phillips head screwdriver for the adjuster to get the bulbs pointing where you need them to be. All right guys, wrapping things up here with the Axial black one-piece headlights. These are headlights that'll fit 1987 to 1993 Mustangs, and you can check them out more online right here at

    Modern Styling. These black Axial Mustang Headlights have a stealthy one piece designed housing that blends nicely into the lines of any pony for sleek sexy styling. So now your fox body pony can have clean modern looks rather than the bulky three piece lights it came with from the factory.

    Improves Visibility. You can greatly improve your night visibility just by replacing your old weathered and worn headlights with a new set of crystal clear lights from Axial.

    Full Warranty. These Axial lights feature a Full One Year Warranty.

    Bulb application. These Axial Headlights use a dual element 9004 bulb for high/low beams (not included). American Muscle offers high quality 9004 replacement bulbs from Raxiom and Sylvania. See the drop down menu option above.

    Installation Notes. It may be necessary to trim the factory headlight bucket for proper installation.

    Why is it necessary to re wire the lights? How come you can't just use the factory sockets? Also, how and where do you "seal for condensation" these are the best looking solution for my fox. I hope I can make them work.


    • The Axial Black One-Piece Headlights will require for you to upgrade your parking and turn signal harness to properly fit with the one piece design of the new headlights. To seal your new headlights, you will need to lay a thick bead around the housing which the bead will need to be on the housing to lens to give a proper seal.

    Does this work with raxiom conversion?


    • Hello! The Axial Black One-Piece Headlights will not work with the Raxiom Headlight LED Conversion Bulb Kit. The headlights use a 9004 bulb while the conversion kit uses a 9007 bulb.

    Hello, where can i find the amber light socket? The socket for the light that's closest to the center of the car.


    • The bulbs closest to the center of the car are considered side marker lights. The bulb can be identified as 916NA.

      I wanted something new for the front end of my Stang, so that is when I saw this one piece headlight set and I love it. I can stare at my Stang all day. It is so much better at night, because the lights are a lot brighter. No more faded lights, and looks better than the 6 piece.

      Hate the 6peice

      I own the red GT in the picture. The headlights make the car look newish. A major improvment from those awful 6peices of old. Personally that was what made these cars ugly. You can say they are fun, but are really the ugly ducklings. This is a way to make your car shine. I can't tell you how many people ask me what kind of car mine is or what year? They all have a very impressed look. So if you want style I would recomend this.

      Great headlights

      Tinted headlights are illegal in my state so this is the next best thing to match my blacked out fox. The one piece design has a better look and is easier to install than the 3 piece headlights.

      Excellent product. Requires new harness installation for amber lights. Make sure you have a multi-meter! Also bolts are kind of tricky to get to. Other than that, no trimming was required. Looks great!

      One word describes it all: Amazing.

      I knew I needed to buy some new headlights for my 91 'Stang, but after buying $600 worth of tires prior to this purchase I was hesitant to spend a couple hundred bucks for headlights. I am a 16 year old high school student who works for a miminum wage job trying to restore/customize my car. So money is tight for me. In the end, I took the risk and actually made the purchase. I received my headlights in reasonable time, and installed them that day. It took me a little over a couple hours, but I eventually installed them myself. I'm not a mechanic, but even I figured out. Everyone loves the new look on my car, and are awaiting my new tail lights. Very pleased with these headlights. And also very pleased with American Muscle.

      Nice upgrade

      I was tired of my dull headlights so was looking for something to look really nice while driving. These lights look really sharp, and as another rating said, once we installed the lights which was very easy, there was a small gap above the lights, but it was nothing to repair. They are very sharp looking!

      I wasn\'t sure how I felt about getting one piece headlights. It was a wild step when I purchased them. But when I got them on, they look great and perform even better. You should definitely get rid of those old cheesy 6 piece.
