Default LED bulbs

Ok, Sylvania says the front turn signals on 00+ are 3157'* and all the rear bulbs (stop, reverse, rear signal) are 3057'*.

I want to put LED bulbs in all the current incandescent spots. No big deal for the front, because they make 3157 LED bulbs. But I can't find any 3057 LED bulbs for the rear. All the LED bulb websites say they are interchangeable. Is that really true, or am I gonna spend money on bulbs and then they wont work?

I've heard about some LEDs tripping the DIC saying the bulb is out. Keep that in mind when changing them.
