One more thing, This allows you to use the reverse bulb and socket and leaving it dangle inside as turn signal, and the other socket has to be shaved and dangles there right? Or I could splice in my euro sockets? but I have no bulbs I check them they're blown just wanna be sure.

You're going to have to splice in, take the revers sockets out and splice in your euro turns to the old reverse wires. You won't have reverse anymore until you splice back in to the green/black wire on the plugs by the drivers side rear-quarter

Have you tried the universals at autozone? They fit just fine, and are easier to find replacement lights for.

Sorry, I don't have universals. What you could do is go to the junkyard and cut off the sockets and glue them to the back of the euros so the U.S. lights fit. Very similar to this writeup:
