Default 2006 Wrx fog light trouble

I bought these foglights off a FB group and didnít realize they were different till I got home. I got them pretty cheap so my question is, what can I use or what can I do to plug these into the harness of the car? Also, I got some H3 LED bulbs for it but they stick out farther then the screw cap it has. Would an oem socket work for this? Anyone?

I am assuming the black leads are tied to the same points the other leads are and only one set of leads is needed for the connection. Do the other ends have spade connectors also? If so just match them up and tape up the black leads.

One of the black leads is like the ground that comes from the bulb, the other black and red are away from it.

I am assuming that the black ground lead is also tied to the white lead. Is that correct? If so then you only need to use the leads that fit the wire terminations going to the light.

Yes thatís correct. So I wouldnít need to do anything with the other black and red leads?

I suggest you just tape up the extra ends well so they can't make contact to anything and stow them away.
