What are all the Rear bulbs, My local Autozone doesn't even list or can not 5701KA Rear turn signal bulbs, they have no listing for it, but that what my owners manual list for the rear turn signal, the

This is what my manul says for bulb replacement: The red highlighted bulbs are what my SLE has in it.

I'm just looking for the LED replacements for all of the Rear bulbs

Back-Uup Lamps 3057 / 3155*Head Lamps
High Beam 9005 / HIR1* Low Beam 9006
Parking / Turn Lamps
(Front) 3157 (Rear) 5701KA*Sidemarker 194 / 168*Stoplamps 3057
Taillamps 3057
Turn Signal 3157

Bulb numbers denoted by an asterisk (*) only apply to the 4.6L V8 engine (GXP)

But my SLE has all of the GXP Bulbs and I can seem to find the replacements for them

Reverse light

Licence Plate & Glove compartment i wouldnt take a chance on buying something else for the licence plate light because i had 2 different ones and they didnt fit

Interior dome/map lights you will need 4 for the roof and 2 for the floor right next to your feet, the floor ones you have to solder a wire on the end of it to hang the bulbs. once you remove the bulbs you will understand what im talking about

Trunk light

Sun Visor this will blind the **** out of you at night when you first open it.. its nice though lol

Load equalizer needed when installing LED bulbs in front ONLY OR rear ONLY turn signals, you must tab it next to each bulb

Load equalizer needed when installing LED bulbs in front AND rear turn signals, you must tab it next to bulb on the front OR back only, not both i tabbed it to the back and used double sided tape to mount it on the body of the car, this way when you open the hood it doesnt show

keep in mind that some bulbs are sold as a pair and some are sold as singles, so keep yours eyes open
Again, this is not the only option, its just what i used and im more than satisfied with it
Hopefully i didnt forget anything, if i did or you have any questions please let me know.

hmmm. this thread has me thinking now. im getting the tranny done for cheaper than expected and i think i found where the extra money is going lol. btw, if you get the $40 ebay h.i.d kit, they should look fine on your car because you have lower profile headlights. mine, on the other hand tend to blind people im riding behind. not so much in oncoming but ive ridden infront of my own car at night, and to say the least i missed my self dimming mirrors lol. (6000k)

go to a donut shop and look for a cop and ask him

you wanna stay out of trouble? buy 8000K HIDs or less, anything higher in the kelvin temp is only gonna get you in trouble and you're headlights' output wont be as strong as 8000K and less

i ran 8000K for so long, then i realised it was too common... so i changed it to 5000K right now it looks pure white with great bright output.
if you wanna have the best of both worlds, get 6000K its very white output with a little blue tint into it
