Switchback LED question

Got a set of oracle switchbacks from a board member, haven't purchased the resistors yet. I found this and wondering if this will work or if anyone has tried them.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/LED-WARNING-...519210&vxp=mtr

I know the resistor is an easy install, and these are more expensive but I like that I can remove them and don't have to do any splicing.

It also seems that all the switchbacks are 3157, but my stock bulbs are 3457?

Unfortunately, I'd guess that it won't work.

The sockets are not keyed correctly for the Camaro.

I ordered that same exact one a month ago. The wiring is fine with this, the parking lights function as normal, the brake lights also light up as it should except the load resistor they used is not up to par for the brake lights.

Just wanted to confirm what everyone expected. I got these yesterday (I ordered before everyone responded apparently) - these DO NOT work, when I plugged them in with the switchbacks they came on amber and stayed amber, no blinking or anything. No big deal I've submitted them for return and ordered the correct resistors.

So I got the resistors today and found the wiring diagram, but I cannot find any indication on the resistors or the diagram - do the resistors not have a "side " meaning it doesn't matter which wire from the resistor goes to power and which to ground? Hope this makes sense...

Polarity does not matter.
