5.0 spark plugs

I went looking for new plugs for my '97 5.0, they are MotorCraft# AWSF 32E that are hard to find, they crossed over to NGK #TR55IX platinum so I bought them. When I compared the two the MotorCraft has a shorter thread section, then I saw they have a tapered seat and the seat was in the same relative place. I search here and other forums to find that Ford has abandoned the original plug design and this longer threaded plug is the approved replacement.
I just wanted to pass this along.

I believe I'm running the same plugs in my '00 Mounty and they're working pretty good, 10,000 miles later.
