Default 6.5 Chrome Front Directional Lights

Im looking to replace the front 4157 bulb with a chome/amber bulb. I cannot find the 4157 in chrome. Some sites say to use the 3057 bulb and other say to use the 3157 chrome/amber bulbs.

(1) What is the difference between 4157 vs. 3x57

(2) Which do I use? for a 07-08?

I'm assuming you're talking about the turn signals.

Go here http://www.v-leds.com/leds-by-part/3...witchback.html and order switchbacks. You'll love em.

wont the LED draw less power thus creating an ERROR when I signal (i.e. rapid turn signal)?

Yea. You can get resistors to take care of that.

I can't remember if it is 6ohm or 3ohm if you only have leds in the front.

6ohm

Use a 3157 for the turn signal bulb. 3156 for the cornering light.
