I did the same thing, bought these 6 months ago and when I realized the turn signal socket only had 2 wires going into it i put the "switchback" function aside. I ended up pulling apart one of the licence plate lights for its electrical connections (didnt need it after i put my trailer plug in that spot). I inserted one of the terminal connections into each of the blank spots in the turn signal sockets and powered them off of the corner markers/parking light circuit. The work a little wonky with the DRL still connected but works great when its disabled. I think i bought the "3157 switchback" bulbs from IJDMTOY with the load resistors for the rear incandescent bulbs... The hardest part was getting access to the M1 Green/red stripe DRL feed into the backside of the fuse panel under the steering wheel
