Default Newbie Needs Help with LED resistors

I've begun installing LED's and have installed turn signals. I need to install the resistors and I've been told I need to wire a resistor for the turn and for the ground, is this true? Any help here would greatly be appreciated in advance.

Yes, you need to get a 50 ohm resistor and put one end on the ground wire and the other end on the turn signal hot wire.

You need one for each led light. So 2 for the front and 2 for the rear.

Ones like this: http://www.superbrightleds.com/morei...r-kit/190/831/

Cool so then that one from superbright will work fine then? I ask because you said a 50 ohm resistor. I can wire things but never been good with the other stuff. Thanks Again.

Yes, here's what mine looked like with the resistor soldered on it. I used a 5w 47ohm resistor.
