LED load equalizer

Going to change out my turn signals to LEDs. Do I need to run load equalizer for each side, or run one load equalizer for the pair?? Front, Rear turn signals? Advance auto said I had to run one load equalizer per led light. Any help would be great

Yep each bulb needs its own load resistor.

LED load equalizer

UNLESS...you change out your turn signal relay to one that is LED-compatible, then typically no load resistors needed.

See this thread for a general explanation...

i tried 1 load equalizer per each side pair, total 2 equalizers for system, it did not work with just 2, I heard someone say you need total 4 equalizers for whole system, 1 for each led light
