Ive tried 1157's and LED's in my brake light but after a few days the fuckin pins fall out of the bulb. Any tips to keep bulbs from taking a shit so fast?
How old is your set-up? if it's up to date, try some rite stuff to seal everything up. where is your light mounted? fender or frame or who knows. also check your wiring. get ahold of a volt meter and make sure you don't have a ground draw or loose wire burnin yur bulbs. just a couple ideas for ya.

Why dont you change it to an LED??

I used to change bulbs every month....got sick of it and changed my tail light to an cats eye LED...

Hasn't let me down yet!
Thanks, but I mentioned I tried that. Same thing. Just looking for Ideas I guess to help isolate the vibration. I will still double check the wiring though...

GM, what LEDs have you tried? If it's the ones built onto the 1157 socket toss 'em. There's an outfit called Radiantz that sells a nice selection of LED arries. Hard wire into your brake light. Alot better set up, kinda pricey though.
