    new coils

    Are they worth getting and do they give you a hotter spark.I had a vacume leak and I checking out my vacume lines and noticed my coil pack harnesses are real brittle, there 10 years old. So I figured just get a new set.New harnesses cost more than the used truck coil packs

    no reason to get new ones if they are still working...

    Yep they still work.The harnesses are real brittle and I was thinking of just replacing the wires.The price for new harnessesis sick.Also the 98's have a different coils that they bolt right on to the valve covers.

    it's the same coils.....they just mount differently. The 99 plus coils mount to a rack that then bolts to the cover.
