Lightbulb Switchback Led Parking/turn Lights

Hi all if you don't remember I have an 2009 cobalt lt2 and was looking at changing from the bulb turn signals to less. Now from what I've figured out on Google and all is that I would need to get switchback leds for the turn/parking lights since they are one in the same bulb. Now would I have to install a resistor for each also or not, and has anyone already done this so i can get an idea which ones I would need to buy? And yes I would want it to stay like stock meaning the one light would stay on and would come back when i cancel the turn. Thanks for the help!

i tried the switchback led's without a resistor and i got the hyper flash and it looks like a cop when i want to turn and is annoying lol, so definitely get the resistors!

Did you stay with them or did you just go back to bulbs?

took them out and went with a 36 led white bulb, and now the turning spot is a bright yellow cause of the orange plastic piece in there, so its something different but still practical. But if you want the switchback look just buy those and the resistors and youll be good to go, and theres a couple how-to's on switchback's so install should be easy.

When I had my switchbacks, I ordered them from v-leds.com with the 6 OHM resistors. Just splice one end to the ground wire, the other to the turn signal wire and you're good to go.
