You might need resistors. You will be able to tell when you install the bulbs and when you turn them off if you see a slight glow like they are still on your will need to make a trip to Radio shack and get some reistors. If you dont see a slight glow your good to go.

If you end up needing resistor google Led/resistor calculator and plug in the info that way it will help you decide what resistor you need.
When I did my resistors, I just slipped the resistor lead between the bulb and the little bracket that holds the bulb. Or like others said just solder it to the bulb.
