    I am looking to replace the front turn signal bulbs with switchback LEDs. I was looking at a set on eBay that comes with the resistors and connectors. I was thinking of going that route, or replacing the turn signal relay and not doing the resistors. Has anyone made these work?
    Bulbs and resistors:

    Or flasher relay and bulbs:

    I've done the bulbs and resistor route. This requires you to cut and splice the resistors inline with the turn signal. Relay, just replace relay, no cutting of wires involved

    I used the bulbs and new flasher relay option on my 2000 Yukon XL, and when my dad got his LED turn signal assemblies, we also used the new turn signal relay.

    If you get led tail lights, you will be ready for those, too.
