Default Front turn signal bulb

I have searched and keep finding different numbers for the front turn signal bulb on the sedan. Is it 1157 or 2357?? Also, I would like to find some of the bulbs that have the slight blue tint to them, not the solid chrome ones but a slight blue color to them. Anyone found these and know where I can get a set? If not, I'll settle for the chromes but love the look of the blue ones. Anyone have a lead?

Just an edit, I went to Sylvania'a site and they list the front as a 2357a and the rear as 1156. I can find these 1157AST Sylvania Silverstar "2" Signal Bulbs 1157 AST Bulk No Packaging New | eBay which are exactly what I'm looking for but will they work in the front in place of the 2357's?

See, that's exactly what I mean about there being different numbers at different places. I did see that post before but at the same time another site posts a different number. Guess what I really need to know is will the 1157 bulb fit if it is a 2357.

I ordered the ones I posted. I'm thinking it'll work fine, guess we'll see.
