Default Cheapest 1157 bulb holder thingy?

I want to convert all the "red" lenses in my tail lights to 1157 LED bulbs. To do that I need the dual circuit 1157 style bulb holders. I didn't realize how pricey those things were online, being 10 bucks and up. I need 6 of them.

Anybody have a good cheap source? Or maybe you have a pile of them at your house I can have for 14.99 shipped?

I'll be hacking them up and siliconing them into the housings. Paying 60 bucks+ to get more brake lights is expensive!



There is a 940 sedan in the local pick and pull if they haven't crushed it yet, but 2/7/9 stuff around here is rare.

If I can't find a good price on these sockets, I'll likely convert to wedge base bulbs since you can buy those sockets for pennies.

I'll see what I have tomorrow - I doubt I have 6 of them though.

No worries. I ordered generic 1157 sockets from super bright leds. They were 2 bucks each. I’ll just have to make them fit.

Interested in seeing how these fit, I was thinking of hardwiring my taillights using similar sockets instead of the traditional method with factory sockets.

Keep us updated
