Are both rear bulbs on a 98 chevy silverado supposed to be brake lights


if the bulb has only one point of connection then the wattage on the bulb denotes if it is a brake or tail light
either bulb will work but a stop light bulb ( 25 watts ) will be too bright for tail lights while a tail light bulb (5 watts) will be too dull for a stop light
if the bulb has 2 points of connection ( duel filament) then the pins are off set so that when the bulb is installed each filament pont line up with the correct circuit
