I solder all the leads I need (and resistors tied to pins) onto the new socket. This is before removing the old socket. Make them 4 to 5 inch long, so you have plenty to play with. Single-stranded, cloth covered are the best, because they most easily hold their shape.
As you pull out the old socket, solder in the new leads --- one-by-one --- to avoid boo-boos. Photos definitely help.
