If just the headlamps are dropping out on these years, then it is likely the headlamp switch, the hi/low dimmer switch or the wiring suppling power to/from all of the above.
i had issues with the fuseable linke on my 90'. def not the same issue. i would guess it could be the switch, as it controls the exterior lights and the interior dash lights. or a ground that is just getting off and on consistency.
thanks to everyones input! i know have some directions to chase.
