FRS 7443 CK or Standard?

This is probably a dumb question but searching for the term "CK" doesn't work because it's too short. I would like to get switchback LEDs for my front turn signals. There are a billion of them on Amazon but almost all of them are for the standard socket type rather than CK socket. Does anyone know if the FRS has a CK socket or Standard socket? I know how to test for myself but I don't feel like digging into the car to test and then ordering the correct LEDs just to dig back in there again to install. Something tells me they are standard sockets simply because for the life of me I can't find any discussion on this topic.

I went ahead and checked for myself. The sockets are standard. The grounds are on the end. This means there are tons of LED options for this car.

@ermax which ones did you end up getting? I'm looking to get these too. I'm wondering if you got additional resistors? or built in resistors or the specialized flasher/blicker from Diode dynamics that takes care of hyperblink

Dang you are asking me to remember something form 2018? Hahahaha. Itís going to take some time to think about this one. If I recall I modified the OEM relay. For sure I did not buy the diodedynamics relay. Let me dig around a little and see if I can refresh my memory.

Just get the led flasher. No reason to overcomplicate the setup with the resistors if a flasher is available

On the 2013 the DRLs have nothing to do with the flashers. I have LED high beams and to avoid the flickering DRL issue I simply disabled them using Techstream.
