Default 2002 Cavalier turn signal keeps going out

Hi all,
I have an 02 Cavalier. The rear turn signal keeps going out. However, both bulbs are good (they are dual filament bulbs). I have had this problem before about a year ago. I replaced the socket that the bulb plugs into and the harness plugs into and it fixed the problem until recently. The turn signal went out last week and I went to AutoZone and bought a new socket for both sides. I plugged it into the harness and plugged the bulb in, and it worked just fine. Only about a week after, it went out again this evening.
I checked the bulbs again and both are good. I pulled the bulb and flipped it around and it started to work again just fine. I went out to dinner this evening and the darn thing isn't working again. Anyone else had this problem or have any suggestions? Turn signal relay is also new.

if it uses glass bulbs with the small contact wires on the outside carefully bend the contact wires so that they have a better connection in the socket.
