Regular stock bulb.

Gives me just enough load for the flasher to be happy.

I was able to squeeze a clear 1156 LED bulb in the footwell, dome (with a modified setup using footwell light fixture), rear hatch, and underhood locations.

Nice and bright.

Interested in the cluster bulbs and Clock bulbs. Do you want the old sockets first or can they be sent after the swap?

Information: If you are going to run LED turn signals, here is the modification needed for the STOCK flasher relay behind the dash. If you need more info on finding it, look in your shop manual. Carefully open the STOCK relay and snip the lead on the integrated circuit as shown in the photo. Easy as that, no $30 special relay needed.

For those doing the LED swap, Superbrite LED has a flasher that is plug and play that eliminates the need to dissect and rely on a thirty-year old flasher for $12.97. e-Bay has them for even less. EP-27 is the one I got, works fine. The only issue I have is the noise is less than OEM, so you can't always hear that your turn signals are on, especially with a 3" exhaust.
