            Works great!

            The clip on my passenger side headlight socket was broken, and the light was very dim and barely shining. This new socket brought my headlight back to perfect working order. After simply cutting out the old socket (make sure you take note of the order the wires are in!) and installing this new one with butt connectors (again, making sure the three wires are connected in the correct order), I was done and once again have full visibility at night.

            Poor quality

            Electrical connectors inside the plug move around and push out when installing bulbs, almost identical right down to the issues as the dorman replacements

            Quick and simple replacement!

            Really took no time at all to cut the old harness of mine that was mutilated by ebay halo lights from Previous Owner and replace with this one. Socket fits firm and snug inside headlight housing and gives you PLENTY of wire to work with!

            good but...

            It clips on the headlight bulb nice and snug(good) but the retainer for the wires on the back flops around and it doesn't look like its sealed on the back either(bad)

            Product didn't last more than A week with out giving me problems. The connections tend to move around inside of the plug. So I had to make further modifications to fix..

            Socket worked great. Easy to wire, fits snugly into the socket that is wired to the headlights I also purchased from American Muscle.

            Great replacement

            Had to get this because the old clips from the original socket broke off and could no longer hold the plug from the headlights in place. It was a simple Instal just cut the old wires, strip them down the the copper core and sodder the new headlight socket on. (Just match the right wires together)

            Works like a charm

            The last time a replaced the headlight bulbs, I noticed that there was a little slop in the socket connection. So when I ordered new Raxiom Dual Halo headlights, I ordered a pair of these also. Soldered them in to the harness and they fit nice and snug like new factory pieces.

            Blinking lights!!!

            These are great if your headlights are not working correctly due to old sockets. Super easy install and only takes a few tools. If your upgrading your headlights I would include these in the purchase. These were more affordable through American Muscle then the local part store.
