Easiest way to change spark plugs?

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Redneck_ranger, Feb 10, 2012.

  1. So I'm finally getting around to giving the old girl some new life and putting new spark plugs in this weekend. 4.0 SOHC, block side plugs. From what I heard, the easiest way is to pull the tire off and get at them that way. Anyone know differently? And I'd be doing the plugs one at a time, meaning take one wire and plug out and immediately replace it. So don't get on me about the firing order lol

    pull the passengers side wheel and remove the gap guard if you have them. That is the easiest way

    go through the fender wells on both sides. Also having a second person turning the ratchet while you place the socket on the plug and whatnot. even with extensions and and swivels it can be a PIA.

    Alright. I have the grille guard on that I can stand on if I choose to do it that way lol We'll see when the time comes. Getting me some Autolite Double Platinums and I believe Motorcraft wires? Not positive, whatever my buddy has me setup with.
