It's much easier to do it in the rear. It doesn't matter where the led bulbs are front/rear they all share the same circuit. Also in the rear there are only two wires so it's a no brainier.

ooohhh wow , u jus blew my mind!! I thought that i needed to use a resistor for each led because i also have leds in the rear. so i only need one for each side?

It depends on the resistors you are using. Most common are 50w 6ohm. You will need one for each bulb. You can purchase different load resistors with a different impedance that may only require you to run 2 resistors. Furthermore I have doubled them up in the rear. So 4 total, 2 on each side in the rear I'm not sure on the values for the ones you would only need two of. Also just wire the ones in you have. The idea is they just suck up some of the extra juice the led bulbs don't need. Even tho you have 4 bulbs they might slow em down enough without buying anything else. Good luck.
