If you want a little better beam and/or you want hid lights get an aftermarket lense that uses h4 bulbs. they dont cost much more than bulbs and give you more options- same procedure except the bulb needs installed into the lense/lamp.:D

Old Samurai wiring can cause the voltage at the bulb terminals to be low, and you'll not get the brightest light you can. Search around for Samurai headlight rewiring, here and elsewhere, and you'll find plenty of discussion and how-to, mostly involving a direct-to-battery connection and using relays right at the headlight. The headlight ground connection goes all the way back to the headlight switch, so there's that much more wire and voltage (& brightness) loss.
