LED taillight repalcement bulbs

Hello,

I was curious were is a good and respectable place to get LED replacement bulbs for the rear taillights?

Is it possible to use the existing socket or do I need a new socket unit?

Also, this might be related, or in another topic, but were is a good place to get a LED strip for the front, like on the bottom were the fog lights are....


I have the Revotec Halo projector;s and I just want a little more blink of lights on the front. As it is now with the revotech lights, people get the **** out of my way, because they don't know what car I am gaining on there ass and 2nd there pretty bright lights and wide-panning.

I just order the Racingline Strut Tower bar. so I just want some LED lights for my ass to make it a complete deal....

I got mine from ebay... no problems either
Plus, definitely cheaper than $55




This is just an example of what I'm talking about.
This probably isn't the right size, and you can get more/less led's

I got all my LEDS from Amazon. All worked pretty great. Got my resistors to stop the hyper flash from there too.



I also did the third brake light. It's not as difficult as most make it out to be...

I just bought the 3157 LED bulbs from superbrightleds and was wondering just exactly how did you wire the resistors?

A better question though is what LED flasher should I get to negate the need for resistors? I've been looking online all day to no avail.

I would like to know too about the flasher do you have the little quick connects? Just connect the ground wire to the resistor then you can either go back to the wire or just a bolt works too. I can't remember which is ground.
