I've seen 89+ cars with the old lights, not personally done it.

THink they are patterned the same for the fasteners. I can't see a change happening that costs money.

Ok just completed this swap and wanted to update incase anyone else was looking at doing it.

Most obvious is the 87-88 lights are two piece while the 89-up are one.

The inner stud closest to the license plate was move about an inch or so over so you have to drill a hole for it. No apparent reason why they moved it.

Now the hard part...the passenger side light houses the hole for the trunk lock. This will not just bolt onto the 87-88 cars. It required major dremel modification to the 89 tail light housing to fit. Once it fits your trunk lock will not be 100% flush with the housing. Not noticeable unless your bending over and starring at it.

Over all I think the 89 tail lights look much better and happy with how it turned out. My original tail lights are tucked safely away if I ever want to swap back.
