LED Brake / turn bulbs

I had a bulb blow out and when I went to Auto Zone I could not help but to buy the LED type bulbs that they offered for my truck. The only thing that worries me is that when I use them they blink really fast, I know they use less power and the package they came in said something about a load balancer?

My queston is, will it burn up my flashers or something else by blinking very fast, or should I just live with the irratating difference in the flashing speed?

Thanks for all input.

Zach

I changed my flasher relay to an electronic type and that fixed my speedy turn signals after the LED install.

If the faster flashing doesn't bother you, I would just leave it. After I found the flasher relay, it wasn't that hard to change for me.
