 Yes, if you go to a auto parts store, they will have a replacement for the 1157.

reason i ask is because the left side is brighter than right side and i dont see any reasons why it is like that. i was thinking maybe led bulbs would eliminate the problem.. ?

It could be an older bulb compared to the others? Or you could have  a connection problem of some sort .

LED do come with other problems especially with the dual inputs on the 1157 ( one for brake and one for running lights ) The LED will give fwed back threw the other input and can cause your side marker lights to come on as well. Also there is thr flasher problem as well..Since the LED draws so little current it's might no pull enought current to activate the flasher or cause it to hypeflash. I tried the LED route and had to many problems . Went back to the orginal style .

The rear harness connects to dash harness under the kick panel behind the emergency brake pedal. look for a crusty connector.
