headlight bulb question

i ordered some 906 chrome amber bulbs off autolumination and got them in the mail yesterday. i take them outside and they look alot smaller than the parking lights in the headlights. did i get the wrong ones? or are they just smaller?

ok i am confused, your title says headlight (9007) then you compare it to your blinker (3457)?

194 is the corner bulb correct. Its not the bulb thats in the headlight, its the light thats by itself.

http://autolumination.com/3157_3156.htm


3156 or 3157 Silver Vision

3157 = 3057 3155 3357 3457 4157

will these work?

Oh....ok....i saw your other thread first.


ok......3457=3157.

7 at the end means two filaments.
6 at the end means one filament.

I run 3157's in the front signals.

You CAN run 906's in the corner bulb, but a buddy of mine put very hot burning bright 906's there and it started melting the corner lamp.


While at autolumination, DEFINATELY pickup some (Super White)Xenon bulbs from them. I LOVE THEM in my dome light...superbright man...you'll love them. Here's a pic ripped from their site:

believe me...i gave a pair of the xenon 906's to my buddy in his ranger, and it made me make another order through autolumination and take out my mustang dome llight and run a stock dome light. no pics as of yet...maybe i'll remember to snap one tonight.
