$109.80 (pair)FREE Shipping
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.

The item came without the mounting hardware. The hardware from the original lights would not work. So I could not install the item. Can't find the hardware from any where. Wound up buying a complete headlight assembly with the hardware included from someone else.Helpful (3)

One-piece headlight review
As noted in other reviews, these fit very poorly. I had to make altercations to the marker light harness for everything to fit properly. I have used these for about 1 year now.... finish on the outside of the lights is peeling off and headlights are too loose to pass inspection.Helpful (5)

Made overseas, alteration required and does not set properly in the car. I will need to purchase original headlights so the lights will fit. Do not purchase...junk...Helpful (6)

Look good, but very poor fitment!
These on piece lights add a much sleeker appearance than the stock units. They give a very obvious bright, stylish, and conformal appearance to the front of the car. However, the overall fitment is horrible. Driver side went on with a bit of difficulty. Struggled with the right side. Put them on and off several times trying to determine the fitment problem. Final time left them on with no correct resolution to the issue. Both sides have large gaps between the lenses and the fender. Rubber filler doesn't look good and doesn't fill the gap. A two piece light would likely have fewer problems. Adjusters are cheap and difficult to use.Helpful (5)

The plastic housings, the alignment brackets, and the rubber weather stripping all broke or cracked. Had to use all the old components. The visibility is kinda sad honestly. theres really no concentration of headlight. I tried a couple of different brand bulbs and no real improvement. I will be buying a two-piece for my mustang in the following year and scrapping these.Helpful (5)

I got these lights in 3 days. I watched some videos on you tube on how to install them. Put them on in less than an hour and they looked great on my car. The weather stripping was not good I do recommend doing what other people say on there reviews get some good glue and extra clips so they stay on firmly. After you do all that enjoy the attention you will be getting from strangers.Helpful (5)
I bought a set of these second hand. The weather stripping is shot and doesn’t look like it fit that well to begin with. Does anyone know where I can get replacement or better weather stripping for these?
Firstly, we are sorry to hear about the condition of your lights and the stripping on them. We currently do not offer a direct replacement for this part of the headlights however we would be glad to help assist you in selecting a new set, please feel free to touch base with us either via online chat support or by giving us a call in directly at 1-877-887-1105.
If my original headlights are in good condition and have a good direct beam will this one piece unit be of at least matching quality? I know it looks better but I just don't want to lose any night time vision. I want to pair up with clear fog lights too. Thanks.
The One-Piece Chrome Headlights will have the same amount of light quality being dispersed as your factory lights. This kit is meant to be chrome to shine more than factory and give your Mustang a sleeker look.
