Re: Quad headlights in '94-98 GMC grille?

I have a '98 Firebird Formula, and I can verify for a fact that the same headlights are used in my '89 Chev K1500. The buckets and the frames that the lights fit into are different between the two vehicles.

Re: Quad headlights in '94-98 GMC grille?

I have an '88, and while researching headlight options i came accross the statement of the Trans Am lights being the same. But i believe the context of the conversation was the opinion that an aftermarket company would maybe market to the Trans Am owners, as opposed to truck owners, therefore when you search for headlights for an 88-89, some options might not show up. Broadens the search results. Which does bring up more options as far as LED/HID, if that is what a person is looking for.

Re: Quad headlights in '94-98 GMC grille?

I tried the Firebird angle..... Unfortunately, the H4701 & H4703 lights would still be the same issue. I used to live in Orange County, California... There are countless automotive aftermarket / accessory stores. Nothing ....
( I knew most all car guys too)
I still believe the LMC option is the choice.

I have nice low-mounted PIAA aux. driving lights to make a great improvement.

Re: Quad headlights in '94-98 GMC grille?

I've seen 4th gen Camaros with projector beams, but nothing for my Firebird. I've never really considered the lights a problem in my 'bird, but maybe there is more voltage in the headlight circuit for that car. Makes me think I have to check that now. I think it was stated that the trucks only see 11V DC at the headlights so that would make a difference.
