Default Aftermarket LED Tail Light Assemblies with Front LED(s) Question

I know there are countless LED tail light threads and I've gone through them all but not found what I need specific to my potential LED bulb set-up...

I may have to replace my entire rear tail light assembly and instead of running my current LED 3157 bulbs in my brake and turn signals I'm considering just going with some aftermarket LED tail lights.

One of these styles:
IPCW LEDT-345CB Pair of Bermuda Black LED Tail Lights for 02-09 Trailblazer

For 02-09 Chevy Trailblazer Euro Red Smoke LED Tail Lights Rear Brake Lamps | eBay

I run V3 Triton LED Switchbacks in the front and TXBlazer LED turn signals in my side view mirrors as well as Amber LED 194 bulbs in my corner markers.

I know that both of the above LED Tail Light Assemblies have built in load resistors in the back for the tail lights. So my question is...

For those of you running these tail lights and having LED front turn signals are the included load-resistors in the above LED Tail Light assemblies enough to prevent hyper flashing?

Were you able to just install these tail lights and leave your front LED bulbs alone and not have hyper flashing? If not what did you have to do to stop the hyper flashing?

Yes, but you will also have to add a resistor to both brake lights, or your cruise control will nor work

Just to confirm if I install one of the aftermarket LED Tail Light Assemblies above while running LED bulbs in the front in addition to the built-in load resistors that are on the LED Tail Light Assemblies I'll have to add a load resistor to the brake lights? What size resistor 50W 6 Ohm?

Yes, the 50W 6 Ohm resistor will work.. without the resistor the computer thinks the brake light is on all the time

Default Aftermarket LED Tail Light Assemblies with Front LED(s) Question

I run all LEDs front & rear without resistors, but I don't have the mirror lights. I use a flash module LM486 and no hyper flash & my cruise works. I tried the LM487 first, but my cruise wasn't working. Checkout post # 10 in the link below..
L.E.D help

And this was with all the same exact LED bulbs? Simply switching from the LM487 to the LM486 kept your cruise control working and no hyper flashing?

What style or brand tail light bulbs are you using?

I am using IPCW LEDT-345CB Bermuda Tailights & angel eyes projector headlight assembly's, the LM487 cured the hyper flash, but cruise stopped working. I then swapped it out for the LM486 and no hyper flash & the cruise control worked fine.

Do your "Angel Eyes Projector" headlight assemblies have LED lights in the parking/turn signal location and the 194 corner marker/turn signal?

Got an eBay link or something with a pic of your style headlights?

So looking at the differences between the LM487 vs LM486 flasher relays the descriptions on the relays themselves read as follows:

LM486 = LED / 2-4 Lamps 12.8V / 162W MAX
LM487 = LED / 5-10 Lamps 12.8V / 300W MAX

Thanks for your help Hardcore500

That corner bulb shows no longer available. What would be a good second choice? I simply left that plug blank for now

Something like this should work:

JDM ASTAR Extremely Bright 3014 Chipsets 194 168 2825 W5W T10 LED Bulbs, Amber Yellow( Interior Use Only) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B018GYMOZ0..._0OmgzbDMW7HBG

The original bulb number type is "194". If want options search for "led bulb 194"

Here's a link to all the TBSS light bulb numbers:
