Close but not quite. I think those are the front bulbs.
For the rear, you'll want 7443 bulbs. The _3_ is important, because they're dual-filament bulbs, one for just lights-on and two for brakes-on.
I replaced all four of my red tail lights with the red 7443s, and my rear turns with the amber ones from superbrightleds.com. They look great, but everyone told me the difference between the two "filaments" (lights-on vs. brakes-on) wasn't obvious enough for safety reasons whn braking, so I did my own rear light mod.
I disconnected the red marker lights (the trunk-halfs) from their normal wires, and wired them into the spoiler brake light. Now I have just the two edge lights on fo markers, and the whole back end lights up while braking. No complaints now.
I've also had bad results with LEDs as front "halo" lights. I would aviod using any LEDs up front, because it seems the heat from the headlights kills them before there time. Likewise, I would replace all the rears at the same time, so heat isn't a problem there, either.
My .02, enjoy.
1157's are for the front. Just put seom PIAA extreme white's in. they look hot. I didnt want to throw leds in front because of the heat. although i did put 6-leds in the parking lights and no problems after a month.
Will the 3ohm resister work with just the rear leds? i'm asking this cause i have PIAA's in the front and want to convert my side markers to turn signals. i assume this means 6ohm since there will be 2 sets of LEDS i dont want to just waste money, and i'm lasy to take off the front bumper right now.
