    the passenger side back 2 are a pain in the ass! driver side is a breeze. Just make sure you have plenty of swivels and extensions handy.

    a couple of things i found on my 98 are to use a short handled flex head ratchet on the passenger side to run the old plugs out if they stay snug after you break them loose. not much room in there for a long handle flopping back and forth. i think i used a 1" extension or none on that side too, that universal can really get you cocked around if the plugs are tight.[cant get two hands in there to stabilize it] also dont forget to coat the inside of the spark plug boots with dielectric grease, it makes the install and future removal much easier. that little dab of stuff that is usually in there from the factory doesnt help much

    i didnt have any issues with fuel rails, but moving the last 2 coils out of the way is a must, or the whole rail of coils on 99+ i guess

    Not bad, A few different extensions, wobbles and rachets will save you some time. I get a few from the top then the rest from the bottom, i usualy dis-connect the AIR lines on either side if so equiped.

    I have a 2000 SS and dont remove anything. A few differemt ratchets and extensions is all you will need. You will have some scratched up knuckles and forearms though!
