buy that tool kit from cornwell I posted in the link above, I would suggest having an intake plenum/induction service done before to remove as much build up on these plugs before you change them. It is quite a job, I am a Ford tech and have done a few so far and that tool is your best friend when doing this change. The last set I did broke every plug within less than 1/4 turn. it was an 05 with 120k. It is hit and miss on when they break or do not break. So it is best to have the tool just in case.
