Just make sure when you get a new set, take the old ones off one at a time and replace with the correct length. Might as well replace the plugs while your at it.

VERY tough on the passenger side rear cylinder. Try lifting the car and going through the wheel well on the passenger side...but don't back up your socket against something! (like I DID!). Also, when changing the wires....use stiff wire looped on the ends of the old wires to attach to the NEW wires and pull through! that way you get the same path from the old wire. MAKE SURE your wires are the right ones for each side. The 90 degree bend boots go on ONE side...I forget tho... maybe the drivers side. You could also use zip ties to pull the wires through instead of wire. ***REMEMBER start with a warm engine (not hot)...undo the plugs by half turn only....wait until it cools, THEN remove the plugs. Remember to use an anti-seeze on the plugs.
