Changing spark plugs in 2001 Supercrew 4.6 v8

Ok, I'm not exactly a "newbie" but I don't post very often. I've spent hours looking for a post that has obviously been retired that had step-by-step and pictures detailing the procedure for changing the spark plugs. I've paid for them to be done years ago but don't have a spare $500+ bucks laying around to have that done again. Can any point me to that post or does anyone have a document that will replace it?

I have seen the TSB 05-5-9 but that is for the 2004 F-150. Does this TSB cover my engine as well or is this the new Triton. It's also for the 5.4L, and I have the 4.6. Help if you can, thanks.

Here's the link for changing spark plugs in the 1999-2003 F-150. Don't know if any changes for the 2004...

The link doesn't work, crap!
Go to the 1999-2003 forum and on the third subject for asked questions you will find the link for changing plugs...

I clicked on the link and got a "Page can not be found" message. Any chance you can check the link again and confirm that it works on your end?

I'll run with this link. Did you us any other docs like TSB? Did you purchase any of the removal tools mentioned in the other articles?

Talking

Yep, that's the one!
Did purchase some needed tools such as 1/4" swivel-socket combo, regular swivel and extentions, that really made it easy to remove the COP bolts. Also a tube of the dielectric goop for COP boots.
Go easy on the anti-seize and DO NOT over torque!!!
Have fun...
