Will the headlights from a 97 Outback fit in a 98 Legacy L? Thanks!

I think they changed from the H4 bulb to the 9007 bulb between 97 and 98. Whether that means that anything else changed (fit, mounting points etc.) I have no idea. Just a word of caution.

Thanks folks. I'm pretty sure they'll fit...the fact that it's an H4 bulb is the entire point ;-) I'm planning on some lighting upgrades.

Actually, there were two different revisions. the early revision had the headlamp assembly and the turn signal assembly as one unit. The second revision has the headlamp assembly and the turn signal assembly as two separate units. My 96 Outback has the first revision. I'm not sure about the 97, but you might want to check to see if the headlamp and the turnsignal are a separate unit or combined as a single unit.
