Default Tail light Socket doesn't fit aftermaked

I bought an aftermarket APC light but when i tried to install it the socket for a 2007 doesn't fit the new aftermarket light, the socket came with 3 lips each (turn & sop light) and the new light housing came one with 3 lips but different to OEM and the other with 2 lips.

What I need to do to find a socket the fit in new light?

Thanks,
RedPT07

Some guys have fixed the sockets by taking a dremel to them and grinding out the tabs to fit. Or go to your local wrecker and get the plugs from a pre-2006
