Scott were they plastic or metal?Thanks for all the replies guys. I decided to get them from NAPA after looking at the ones from pep-boys/autozone/reillys. The quality was a little better. Scott
You know the socket picks up the ground from the tail light housing. If the socket is loose the ground may not be good and if you apply sealant it may make it worse.x2 getting them from autozone. I wound up buying 4 online, and they turned out to be crap (the bulbs wouldn't fit). Went to autozone (paid slightly more) and bought 4 and they worked perfectly.
If you are having issues with them falling out, apply a little clear permatex between the plastic and housing. No issues with them falling out for me anymore.
