The bulbs are a 3757 AK. I can ONLY find these is amber. My 9-7x has clear housing, but the amber bulbs make the turn signal housing amber. I was looking for a red bulb, and can only find amber. I found a LED bulb online that is red and will "plug right in". However the bulb is a 3757A. Anybody know if it'll fit? Or any other suggestions.
Thanks all

I don't know if the LED will fit, if that was your question? If your question was regarding the bulb code, the A after the numbers denotes amber?

Well both kinda. So the number 3757, is the actual bulb itself, and the a denotes it as a amber bulb? What does the AK stand for then?

UPDATE. Found these bulbs called "stealth bulbs". They are chrome, and are amber when activated. Found bulbs for the whole truck on the site! They are a little pricey. Guess removing all that stupid amber will cost a little penny.

Could always get 3757 amber LED's, most are clear bulbs and illuminate amber, ebay # 321028742688 there are also some with a clear plug base.

I had Silver star bulbs like that for the front turns on my Cobalt.

I wouldn't mind the LED's, I just have no experience in making a resonator board for the led lights. One day I will give it a try, for now the stealth bulbs are the easy way out. Lol :biggrin:

It's easy, just connect one wire to the turn signal wire and the other to the ground wire.

Thats not bad at all! I can use those for the brake lights in the tail, and front turn signals as well?

Also, my front turn signal is a 5702NAK bulb. I was reading online that the 3457 is the exact bulb. Any truth to that?

You only need them for the turn signals, IDK if you need SRCK (wired different) LED bulbs or not for your brakes, the TB does, but turns are standard LEDs.
