I have 6 ohm ones that I'm going to install tomorrow. How did you mount them? I imagine they get pretty hot?

Yes they get hot. I mounted mine on the inside lip of the engine compartment just aft of the headlights.

I guess you wired in some longer wires?

Yes I extended the wires on each end to have plenty of wiggle room. Otherwise mounting locations are very limited.

you don't need resistors but since they're LEDs they will blink twice as fast as the stock bulbs. wired as below EXCEPT THE POSITIVE SHOULD BE WIRED TO THE GREEN WIRE (I didn't take a pic after I fixed it

the resistors i got were sold by ebay seller ceresimports08 and titled "Load Resistor Fix LED Bulb Fast Flash Turn Signal Blink" and they are 6 ohm and come with the taps needed to wire them in
I can't get mine to work. Using your picture as the guide: do you wire them into the first and third wires? I did that and I can't get them to work.

Yea I did first and third and it works fine...that's weird, maybe it's bc you have LEDs in the rear?

I have led rears, license plate, and reverse lights. I'm upgrading to 3 ohm resistors as per Omelet's recommendation.

Do you think the spring isolators gave you any lift? I've read that the Bilsteins are good for 3/8" and the front strut plates about 1/2". Do you think that's about right?

i think the spring isolators gave some lift since the old ones were completely worn...i took measurements everytime i did anything to it and the measurements didn't really make sense since the strut plates/bilsteins/isolators up front gave 2" lift and the isolators/bilsteins in the rear didn't do much at all (less than .5")

You mentioned new spring isolators - did you get them from JBA?
