If you've got clear corners, you'll want PY21W. If you've got stock amber corners, then you'll want 1156. My personal favorite chromed bulb is the Philips Silvervision. Unlike all the other silver/chrome bulbs out there, these are as bright as stock.

(if you're using clears with your original sockets, you'll have problems fitting the PY21W bulbs... You'll need to figure something out though because that's the type that blinks yellow).

Your front bulbs are either 1156 or 7507. To make sure, take out the factory bulbs and look at the pins on the metal base. They will be offset by 150 degrees or 180 degrees. If they are 150 degrees- 7507, if they are 180 degrees- 1156.

The sidemarkers are 194 and the rear turn signals are 1156. Your reverse bulbs are also 1156.

You can either replace them with the Solaris Invisibulbs or the V3 LED Turn Signal Bulbs. Both options are available in amber or xenon white.

Hope that helps, let me know if you have any other questions!
