LED Tailight question

I replaced my stock tail lights with some sealed low profile ones I found at a local tractor supply place. The lights work but since the LEDs have less resistance than the old bulbs the turn signals operate about twice as fast. I didn't put a meter on the either the old or new set so I have no idea of the exact difference. Any ideas on an easy fix, new relay, add a resistor etc.?
thanks

You just need to get a "heavy duty flasher". You can buy em at any auto parts store. Its the little silver thing about the size of a golf ball that is mounted up under the dash above the drivers feet, to the left of the steering column.

X2 on the stu offroad. I also fixed my flasher for free. Be careful when cutting the foil. I helped a friend do another one and we wrecked it. cost 30 for the new LED Flasher.
