Really. That's what worked best for me. Just don't put them back in with an impact lol. I worked at a dealer for 10 years. When one guy finds a successfull shortcut most everyone started using it. Picked that one up from a few guys I went to a driveability class with and I always broke less plugs with an impact, personally. Results may vary though.
