Booo to no response for an easy relay repacement
After contacting Tracy (where i got my LED's from) over at http://autolumination.com/ she does not have any relays to install to fix this issue (has relays for some jeeps but not my model).
So... She tells me this below, which I knew but was just trying to avoid.

How can I tell how many resistors I will need before purchasing?

Ok, the trick to knowing how many equalizers you need will depend on exactly why each is needed. Essentially, any led signal bulb will require one, that part is a given. The others may not, depends on the car and if there is a bulb out warning system linked to that specific bulb.
> If your vehicle is equipped with an electronic bulb-out warning system, then any led bulb used in a bulb position that is monitored by the electronic bulb-out warning system will likely trigger an electronic bulb-out warning.
> Not all bulbs are monitored by the electronic bulb-out warning systems. To test to see if a bulb is monitored by an electronic bulb-out system, you can remove the bulb to see if you get a warning,
> To stop the electronic bulb-out warnings, install a load equalizer across the + and - wires that feed each led bulb that is causing an electronic bulb-out warning. Use one 6 ohm at each led bulb that is 3/4" diameter and larger. Use one 15 ohm at each led bulb location that is smaller than 3/4" diameter.

> Unfortunately, the circuitry required to do this for the larger tail light and turn signal bulbs is too bulky to fit inside those bulbs, so the load equalizers are still the only solution.
