View Full Version : Low Beam Light Q

04-12-2012, 07:23 PM
I was wondering what size the low beam light housing is; ie: 4x6, 5x7. I was thinking of putting on some HIDs on my car, and need to know what size housing i should buy for my car. I would go out and measure my car headlights myself, but my pops is using my car for the next couple weeks. Thanks guys.

they have a link to a place that sells housings that work for this application.

i have read those threads, but my buddy has a couple different sizes at his shop that are universal projectors, and i just wanted to know the size so i can go pick some up and see if they work.

You didn't say which car or year.

The headlights in the 1998-2002 Firebird are smaller than 4x6 so a 4x6 replacement housing will not fit.

The headlights in the 1993-1997 Firebird are 4x6 so a 4x6 replacement housing will fit.

"universal projectors"? Are those the poor quality plastic housings with a hunk of glass stuck inside to fool people into thinking they are projectors?

Like these?$(KGrHqRHJCQE7yuyH(75BPC9kgyGZg~~60_58.JPG

Those typically have poor output. They are not real projectors.

You can clearly see the bulb and there there isn't a cut-off shield. Also the blacked out ones are worse.

Im not really sure which ones he was talking about that he had, but i guess i will just end up going with the LMC ones.
