Default Led turn signals

What do I need to make led lights flash properly for turn signal?

Load resistors for each light and a LED flasher unit.

This is the one I use because, it's non-polarized
$12 on Amazon

Do I still need the load resistors with this flasher?

I didn't have to use them on the three I've converted.
These have worked with LED and incandescent bulbs.

I have found that you don't really need a special flasher if you keep at least one incandescent bulb in the circuit. LED lights just don't offer the same resistance that incandescent bulbs do and that's what the flasher goes by to make the light blink. I put LED bulbs in and left the indicator as incandescent and mine works good with a normal flasher. I've got to admit, LEDs look brighter.
