  • Okay WTF is the diff between a 3057 and a 3157??

    So no one has really given me an answer to this question yet.

    I hear the 3157's are brighter,

    see my truck calls for a 3057 for stop, rear turn's, and brake lights.

    99+ call for 3157.

    The guy at our local hopup shop said ever since clears were around he's been putting 3157's in 88-98's.

    I found some posts saying they will do the opposite of what you want, (brakes are dim, running lights are bright)

    So does anyone have any real experience with the two lights? They look identical from the outside....:cussing:

    I run both in mine (by accident) and they worked the same/good for me.

                      The difference between the two is this:

                      3057- 32.2 kandle power
                      3157- 32.3 kandle power

                      but the 3157 will last twice as long, if you want a long lasting bulb go with a 4157

                            According to this link, the only difference is the park lamp filament. It's 3cp (8.26W) in the 3157 and 2cp (6.72W) in the 3057. They are both 26.88W 32.00cp on the brake/turn filament.
