they are called switchbacks, specialty light. Check out www.superbrightleds.com I believe they have them.

Don't know about the fog light, but the 3157 turn signal bulb is a Switchback. I've had them for years.
Purchased them from autolumination.com

As far as making them work goes all you need to do is get a couple of 3157 sockets at the yard and wire them to the factory signal wiring and mod the fog housing to except the 3157 socket.

There are only 3 wires to each signal and there color coded so you should be fine.

This is where i got my bulbs at and they work flawlessly.

Make sure to seal around the fog bulb hole.. it more than likely wont be a direct fit

After looking at this pic of one of my fogs with the back removed im thinking that all that might have to be done to mount the socket will be to remove the center metal piece held in by the two screws and i already know the hole is large enough to accept the bulb and once that is done cut out the back of the cover and knotch it out just like the hole in the marker light.

Now i know this will render the aiming of the fog useless but it no longer a fog anyways it just another marker light.

Something else that i think will help produce a more even look to the light output would be to tape off the lens and paint the inside of the black housing with some adhesion promoter and some chrome paint.

The lack of reflective surface has always bothered me with the 1st gen fogs

Something else i was thinking about is that if you still want fogs the existing factory wiring can be used to power a set of aftermarket ones.

Those numbers are just for indicating the bulb size that fits your vehicle.
Switchbacks under those numbers will be labeled as Switchbacks, then there are 2 types.....
