The headlights must be on bright in order to activate the drop down lights on our '87 FC.

Welcome to the group--lots of info here.

Another question... can I wire them to the headlight relay so they will work without having the brights on ?
And what relay is the headlight/highbeam or are they separate

Lots of people have wired them to come on with the high beams.
But you will find that as cool as those lights are,with the hinges and air cylinders and all that that they are a PITA to maintain.
Have you found any parts yet?
I don't have any,those parts sell fast,and always have.

Check the ground on the bulb, lamp & lamp housing & they are Pita
They are wired to work on bright lights only.
