Not to sound like a jerk or anything, but I guess its true what they say: you get what you pay for. Taillights for 87 bucks plus shipping sound too good to be true, so I wouldnt expect the best fit and finish out of them either. Sorry to hear about your problems though. Ive been in your shoes before as well. I ordered a set of taillights for my old monte carlo (that werent quite as inexpensive as these, but werent top dollar either) and had similar fitment problems. My advice: see if you can send em back and get a full refund because the headaches of trying to make them fit arent worth the fight. If you cant send em back, then do what you can to make em work and if you have success, be sure to post how you did it! Best of luck to you...
