    F/S: 98-02 F-Body Parking/Driving Light Socket KIT

    I have come up with a solution for your 98-02 Parking/Driving light socket problems. I am now and currently have in stock several "already made" kits available for you. Common problems of your factory sockets are corrosion, working intermittently and are not a good water-tight seal. Stop replacing countless bulb's trying to fix this problem because it all comes down to your bulb socket. Here is my solution

    I have in stock "ready-to-install" kits for you.

    Kit contains:

    NEW Bulb socket with extended pigtail for easier bulb changes in the future. (Has an upgraded seal from the stock style to keep water out)
    3- Crimp style butt connectors (1 for each wire)
    3- Pieces of Heat Shrink Tubing to keep your connection 100% waterproof
    1- 3457NA Amber bulb replacement
    1- Small packet of Dielectric Grease (not show in pictures)



    My kit (Minus the small packet of dieletric grease that Will be included in every kit)


    These are available and in stock for shipping.

    I am asking 40$ shipped each.
    THIS WEEK ONLY: 35$ Shipped, On sale

    GM's list price on connector ONLY is 74$
    Other places who sell similar connectors are 50$ connector Only
    This is a pre-made kit for you! And the bulb to boot!

    You can send paypal payment to Lordlink151@aol.com
    If you have any questions you can PM me here, or E-Mail me at Lordlink151@aol.com

    Thank you

    Thats a good kit you have there, I've replaced both turn signal sockets due to water intrusion and they were $47 at NAPA and $45 at the dealer without shrink tubing or butt connectors. I'll look you up if they go out again.

    Just trying to save people money, the knock off ones AZ sells will give you more trouble than what you started with

    Is that for the front or rear light? It's my front that's driving me nuts right now, but mines only got 2 wires up there.

    This is the replacement connector for your 2 amber lights up front... I have seen connectors actually come apart. should be a 3 wire

    I'm interested but I noticed that the socket you have in the clear packaging has CHINA stamped on it. It looks exactly like the one I got from Advance/Discount. Where are your parts made?

    Mostly interested in the socket portion where the bulb is seated since this is usually the area that causes the most trouble. Would also like to see where the wires run into the socket since I've seen cracking of the wires in that area. The clip is another problem area but not usually as bad as where the bulb slides in and the wires join the socket. GM's weren't that good and the cheap knockoffs are even worse so it would be nice to see a quality part.

    Thanks!
