No, there aren't two types of 1156 bulbs.

There are 1156 bulbs (180 degree pins) and 7507 bulbs (150 degree pins)

1157 are a whole different type of bulb (150 degree pins) but have two contact points, one is for parking lights one is for blinking. Some cars which have a different kind of socket use two contact points instead of separate wiring.

For your car you need 7506 (a.k.a 1156) bulbs. Single contact (180 degree offset) bulbs.
