I have had LED headlights in our 5 cars for several years now. I LOVE them!! I can actually see at night! Never been flashed by approaching cars, and never been pulled over by the cops. I did aim the headlights down a few degrees in a few of the cars.

Did you make any modifications to the housing?    Did you buy the $70 kit or the $40?  Thanks, Fred

Looks good.

Does High Beam and Low Beam work correctly? Does your sentry light go on saying you have a headlight out?

My system sentry comes on for headlights and tail / brake lights since those are also LED (every bulb in both my Tbirds have been switched to LED).

I just took a piece of some adhesive backed nearly black thin rubber like stuff I had laying around, cut a rectangular piece to cover up the headlamp and park / brake lamp out indicators.

The annunciator panel light for headlamp out comes on when the low beams are on...going to try Jeff's idea when I get my CRV back together.

Bare with my terminology a bit, but the cylindrical bulb holder that screws in and holds the bulbs snug in the sockets needed a slit about 1/8 inch wide about halfway down it so the wires had a place to go.

I got my 9004 LED headlights for the TC from Ebay for around $25. They were 100% plug and play..... zero mods needed and it took maybe 10 minutes to install them. I dont remember the vendor or brand as I did this several years ago.

Many years ago, I got rid of the sealed beams in my 4 eyed 86 Tbird 5.0 and replaced them with aftermarket housings with clear lenses (no fluting) units I picked up from Amazon that take 9007 bulbs. 3 or 4 years ago I replaced the incandescent 9007 bulbs with 9007 LED bulbs from Ebay that were also 100% plug and play.
