Having issues with leds in bumper

I know this has been an issue...I keep on having to hit the bumper to get them to turn on and now not even that's working it's either the left or the right and now the right's just flickering everytime I hit the bumper. I have pulled them out before and tried to fix it that way it worked for a while. Have they addressed this issues with the superbright leds?

I have found the only "cheaper" bulbs that work good have 2 wires on each side, like this base:



The single wire bases like this are hit and miss IMO:

I think moisture buildup and the vibrations from subs causes them to wear out prematurely. Don't your subs fire back?

See that was my issue. I went through a couple sets of LED's before I gave up and went back to the stock bulbs. One of those is out too and I keep forgetting to change them. Glad to know this is a common problem. Any ideas on fixes that last?

Well yeah that probably didnt help your cause out at all lol. But I feel your pain. I'm thinking I'm gonna get an LED bar and just wire it in the back and call it a day.

I got some friends who know a thing or two about wiring. So it shouldnt be nothing but I will take some pics. I dont know when I will get around to it because I dont get pulled over enough for it so it keeps slipping my mind.
