LED for turn signals

Does anyone know if LED bulbs are available for the turn signals? That question was asked on this board a while back but I can't find an answer.

You can get a bulb to replace the 1156 in the rear 1157 in the front, but you will still have to modify the blinker to make the blink rate normal.

I tried them and I didnít like them at all. I went back to the regular bulbs for the blinker and LED for the rear light.

Depends on which ones you buy. They have the standard LED bulbs that will require a module/load equalizer for the LED's, or you can spend more $ on the LED replacement bulbs that have a circiut board/resistor already installed in the base of the bulb that eliminates the module/load equalizer. You will usually find that the LED's with the built in resistor are not as bright as the ones that use a module/load equalizer.
