Why go with the 9005's? '97/Gen 4 have one bulb with two filaments, one for high, the other for low beam. Even if you manage to fit the 9005 bulb in there, you will 1) lose high beam functionality, and 2) have an incorrect/crappy beam pattern.

no, you can put silverstar 9003 aka H4. As long as you don't use high beam too much, the bulb will last long.
