    I am lol, 98% of them are 3057s, 2- 3157s and i think 2- 3156s. I could probably swap the bulbs from my horizontals if i need to. Really hope i can use my led reverse lights in the verticals

    The ****. Lol I never checked the bulbs that where in the harness... Some must be 1 filament and some 2 filament... My bad I assumed the lights that where in there where right lol. Look at the bulb and if it has 2 filaments it should work. If it has one filament it'll work but it won't get brighter when you brake or turn.

    Lmao don't worry about it bulbs are dirt cheap. Yeah theres two filament and ones mixed. So 3157s would be brightest right? I think the 94-95 lights are 3157s

    Yea 3157 has 2 filaments and is brightest. I believe 3156 is exactly the same bulb with just 1 filament.

    If you do need to get new bulbs just go buy LEDs. Basically the same price.

    Both are interchangeable & double filament. Either will work.

    You need a pair of donor sockets + bulbs from vertical tailights. I got mine from a junkyard.

    1 of the sockets in each taillight will only have 2 wires (brown & black). You have to replace this socket with a 3-wire one.
    You simply connect the brown and black wires and splice into the 3rd wire from the existing harness.

    Doesn't seem too hard.. Definitely something to consider in the future. If I got sequentials would the turn signals light all the way from inner to outer without this brake mod? thanks man!
