my guess is the resistor is too high, and is then sucking all the power away from the other lights

I ran your LED spec against E3057 incandescent. 6ohm load resistor is correct.
(2.5watts vs. 26.8 watts ~ 2amps). Look elsewhere.
P.S. The park lamp and turn/brake lamp are individual circuits. They only share a ground.
Steeda SRI w/CAI intake. Trubendz SS 2.5" . FR Susp/Struts. Tune by Tom (FocusPower). Rota Grids. SAP rear spoiler. Custom front air dam, rocker panel bits and Rear valance.
