Default Silverstar Install

Just finished up installing my Silverstar'*...9006ST is the model.

Before Install (stock lights)


One installed (SS on left, Stock on right)


Both installed (Silverstar 9006ST)



For those of you with a 2000+ model who wish to do this it is very easy.
There are 2 bolts that hold the entire headlamp assembly in place. Remove
these 2 bolts and you can pull the headlight assembly forward. It is held to
the side of the car with a small ball clamp but should just pull straight out
with the 2 bolts removed. The wire assembly comes with it and is attached
to the car by a one socket connection making it easy to pull the unit out
without having to discconnect all the bulb wires. Here is a pic.

Looks great, that comparo really helps to see the differences in stockers and SS bulbs. Good info for the 2000+ crowd

Actually on my year, its the only place on the outside of the car where it is displayed. In 2001 they put it on the back bumper. I just orderd a 3rd brakelight overlay with Bonneville on it so the Ricers know what kind of car beat em

Rogue,

The new Silverstars look real good. Thanks for the illustration pic of headlamp removal also. Where did you order the 3rd brakelight overlay from?
