Off hand does anyone know of a replacement tail/stop light socket for a 1976 Coupe deVille?

thanks Chris. This is another case when I had been "overthinking" the issue and forgot the basics.

Don't forget the 5% discount code...  Just google for it, put it in the "how did you hear about us?" place.

I think you will have to cut the old socket out if memory serves me. There are versions of the replacement sockets that have a two wire connection to the socket so you don't have to rely on the housing connection for the ground.

Thanks all. Seems the Rock auto sockets look nice but they are too big to fit and I sent them back. I bought a couple of complete buckets with the lenses but they too had bad sockets. Finally bought a single LH bucket with out lenses and the sockets look good but need a bit of freshening up. Good thing I have 4 Cadillacs or otherwise I would have to waste my time having fun.
