yea... it had nothing to do with the polarity of the LED's.. as my old filimant bulb wasnt working while in the socket... i did rotate the bulb, and found that once i rotated it, i had to jiggle it around for it to light up... both the old bulb and new bulb didnt sit inside the socket tightly, where as the drivers side, it was a snug fit. i figure the contacts had worn out, and didnt have the "spring" in them anymore... which makes me think that all of you with stock tail lights should check your reveres to make sure they work. Also i ended up getting the part about 20min ago from NAPA... reason is it was only $20, ford offers it for $16... so its not an expensive piece thank god. though, the old socket is a pain to get off for anyone who has to do it... its fused all the way around from dirt and salt. a small flat head helps!
