Common sense would've told me to use a standard socket. ;)

sockets could be mostly a generic item, like most any other car that uses that same bulb, might work. temp fix would be wire nutting a spliced socket robbed of a junkyard car, any car that uses same bulb.
good luck

If its a standard bulb, like a 9004/5/6/7, you might try the help section of your local parts store like Autozone. They have replacement sockets available that you just hardwire/butt connector in..
