Resistors for L.E.D Bulbs???

Just threw on some aftermarket tail lights and swapped the bulbs to LED's. Now turn signal blinks @ 2x normal speed. Do i need to put a resistor inline somewhere and if so, what size?

Oh Ya... Dont buy cheap taillight off of fleabay unless you like to modify stuff with a roto-zip...lol

Thanks,
Todd

Idk which one your trucks. You'd just have to pull it and find the one that matches it.
LED Flasher Unit EP27L Specifications
I think this is the one.
