Default LED Brake lights

Would love to get LED replacement bulbs for rear tail/stop lights.
I have lenses - but LEDs don't have 2 filaments...
Anybody understand bulb designations?
Manual says Rear Tail/Stop/turnsignal are all 3157-p27/7W,
yet turn signal is only 1 filament, tail/stop has 2.
I found cheap but good LEDs :

But I called, and there's only one brightness level, so can't be tail/stop.
Anyonone find them? [:I]

Don,

When I was changing tail lights (I just ordered my 3rd set) I noticed that the bulbs were the same (2 elements) on both turn and stop. What is happening is that the turn signal bulb is using only the brighter of the two elements for the signal and the other element isn't used. I can't answer about the LED's but if it's marked for 3157 then there should be two brightness levels in the LED itself to take the place of the conventinal 3157.

You are absoultely corrct - I just checked - I have clear turn lenses and amber bulbs, so I could see the turn signal had 2 filaments - if they say it's 3157, then that's what it is - I ordered them - $33 pair shipped.[?]
