My bulbs have the offset pin design. I have looked at the JLevi site and the site above to get LED kits from. Only problem is, JLevi site has 1156/7507 lumped together. My understanding is that 1156 is not the same as 7507. From the Sylvania site and the site above it looks as if 7507 has the offset pins while 1156 has pins that are 180 degrees apart. Is there a way to fit 1156's into the hole for 7507? Can you just file one pin down on an 1156 and put it into a 7507 socket?
I filed down a pin on the Philips Silvervision to fit it in my holder. It works fine.
