The shape of the headlights changed slightly for MY 2008 IIRC.

05-07 the bottom edge of the headlight is straight, 08+ the headlight and bumper fascia changed to meet in rounded sections .. look at the pix for 07 and 08 headlights and you'll see the difference.

You can put the 08-10 headlights on a 05-07 but there will be a gap between the bumper and fixture where the light curves up.
