Likely not the bulb, check for a poor ground wither from a faulty socket or bad wire to the light.

TEST
remove both bulbs from the lamps but leave them on their wires switch on and see if the bulbs are still different brightness if not they the passenger side lamp housing has damaged mirror is dirty or missalined and needs adjustment. if they are different brightness then this may be a earthing problem.

SOURCE: 2000 mustang headlights are dim

Check the headlight relay.Little plastic cube about 1 1/2" square,usually black or dark brown and white ink numbers printed on top.Bottom has blades sticking down into the wire connectors.Location will either be under the dash or under the hood,not sure exactly about mustang There will likely be other relays in the same location,and many times you can match up two relays with the numbers printed on top,and swap the relay with say...the wipers' relay,just to see if it is a bad relay.Cheap ($0) and a check worth doing
I hope this will solve your issue.

Good Luck.

If my solution proves useful please accept it.

Regards
Arjun

If the ground is good I would take a careful look at the light socket itself. There may be corrosion inside or on the power wire where it goes into the socket or it may just be making poor contact.
You can get a replacement one at any auto parts store. The last one I got was about $10. Get some heat shrink tube to cover your splices, it does a much better job of sealing the splice than tape. Hope this helps.

First, check the sockets on both headlights, both running lights, as well as the tail lights, brake lights, and backup lights. If all sockets (and wiring) is good, then you may have a short in the switch itself. Also, check all fuses and relays, and replace as necessary.
