yeah that's why i'm asking if eclipse parts will fit on a talon of the same year because sometimes i find stuff labeled for both cars but before i buy i want to make sure i don't want to buy something i can't use. cause the two cars look the same but that doesn't always mean they are the same

I'm not sure. I know that Eagle purposely changed aesthetic things to differentiate the cars, the spoiler being the main one. If I had to guess, taillights would be different slightly, too. Though generally the same location and shape, that's because the car's wired for lights there, I wouldn't count on tail lights and headlights being the same thing, necessarily. I wouldn't Talk to someone who can really find out for you. A local car tuner store would be an ideal place to find out.

you can put the talon lights on the eclipse but you will have a gap on the inside edge of the light. about 1/4 of a inch. does not stand out much. as for other parts the talon has no paint on the roof just like the first gen. and the tail light is not the same at all i had to do a lot of body work to convert mine. next the front bumper is the same, but with a diff. logo. the only other thing that is different is the wing. the talon has the same spoiler but a different wing
