Has anyone replaced the blinker relay?

I want to change the relay to fix the hyperblink issue. I figured it couldnt hurt to see if anyone has changed it and can supply a link for the relay they used.

I tried using 6ohm 50 watt resistors. Put them on all four of the blinker circuits and I still have the hyperblink. I'm guessing that the front running lights need to have a resistor on it as well (since its the same bulb), but there isnt really enough room to put two more resistors. Also, in past experience, when you use resistors on bulbs that are always on those resistors get HOT.

So I figured I could remove all the resistors and just replace the relay.

As far as I know, it's one of these 3, at least.

I've got a few different relays coming in the mail. I'll let everyone know what type works, and where it's located.
