Where did you get those 3157's? I like the look of those. How much did all the bulbs set you back?

Hey Gabriel - Just letting ya know, you will need load resistors or a flasher for LEDs. If you don't do either, you'll the 'fast-flash' syndrome. Stock flasher is set up for a certain load. LEDs are much less of a load than regular bulbs so the flasher 'fast-flashes' indicating what would normally be a burned out bulb.

See this link:
eBay Guides - Load Resistor Use With Automotive LED Bulbs

My tails have the resistors built in, but I changed to an electronic flasher when I put my from 3157-A bulbs up front.
