Switchback LED turn signals

Has anyone replaced their turn signal bulbs with switchback LEDs? If so, was a load resistor needed? I had them in my 04 TL and looking to do it again.

Yeah I had them, but switched to amber LEDs because I felt the white park light LEDs didnt match my headlights color temp, and it looked weird. The lenses made them look greenish. I used two 3ohm resistors- one per side and installed them in the rear of the car, as I have LED turns in the rear.. no hyper flash front or back

Not to bump super old thread but in case people are wondering the wiring and switchback temp. I bought mine from vled 6000k switchbacks.

The colors for the final and ground wire are the right two most wires. This is the back side of the socket as the Stanley label is pointing towards front of the car

I think it depends on temperature used..... I think if I got the 5500k one that is more blue, it would have been more green. I went to 6000k which is strictly white I think helps.
