Awhile back I was in a quest to search the rare crystal headlights off an LX model. I'm pretty sure this has been discussed before but someone here mentioned that there are 2 different versions of the LX headlights. If memory serves, one was with capsules the other adjustable. Can someone choose me the right path so it can be an upgrade to my 94 GL, Thanks a bunch.

wowwwww fucking wow

where can i get the disco bal model it look great and it must really light up the night cuz damn the light of a taurus car are not that great at night driving

since ive had some bad experience with fog i would rather change the main light plus add some fog ?

at leastmy 89 taurus with is big square light where not that bad ! lol

so i have to order some light for the taurus from a taurus 94 95 lx and it should have disco ball light cuz here i can get some head light directly from a distributor wich is called monidex and get some copied part cheap or get themm from the scrap ?

According to a Car and Driver test the light output of the "Disco ball" lights is LESS than that of the normal lights. If you're wanting more light, DO NOT install the Disco Ball lights.

Yeah, like 95Se said, Sable/SHOs didn't get discoballs even though they are "higher up" than a regular Taurus.

yup, silverstars.. I had some "off road" lights that looked cooler, but they didn't put out hardly any light.

Fogs are silverstar too..

O.K., i see a couple of probelms here.
first, 94taurus02edge, Qwertz was correct with his answer to you, you will need the retainers if you are going to use the lx/se lights.

now 1st problem, trikt, in order for you to use a gen2 SHO bumper on your GL you will also have to swap out the header panel from that of a gen2 sable.

next, markus, i'd like to see that test because i've never heard of "disco light " bulbs.
when we refer to "disco lights" we are talking about the headlight assemblies. the real reason we call them "disco balls" is because of the way the reflectors are made. not flaming or trying to sound mean just didn't know if you knew. i have not heard of ANY member that has switched from stock assemblies to crystalline(clear) that has not had an improvement in the amount of light emmitted, even when using stock bulbs. i know personaly that i switched to the silverstar bulbs about 3 months before i got my clear lenses, and i still saw a big difference in light transmittal, when i finally installed the clear lenses it was like night and day. so for them to say there is actually less light emitted, would be really weird.
and yes !!!!!!!!</span>

Rudedog, Quertz, Thanks for the info. Yes i'll get the retainers. At first i just thought the Disco ball headlights were a straight swap out with the same connection between the GL and LX/SE's. Speaking of which being that the car's 11 years old the retainer/connections are rusted which I can't budge it even with WD-40 haha.
