The rear shocks are going to bottom out, unless you extend the top hat.

Anything can fit, but you need to do some modifying to the fender and such so the light can fit correctly. I just got myself a JDM headlight, love them. They are really rare to find and sometimes they pop up on eBay once in a blue moon. Can't wait to see pics of your ride.

The headlights I originally had on there, I did a 86-88 to 89-90 sedan headlight swap. The 89-90 have the low beam and high beam on their own housing, which means it'll delete the fog light on the 86-88 sedan headlights.
