    Hell No. Normal plug socket works fine. I jack up the car and do number 8 from the bottom. Changing plugs aint too bad.

    I bought a cheapo 49 cent spark plug socket from my local parts store and cut it in half myself. I use it on a few of my plugs so it was well worth the "investment", lol...

    Even if you did need the shorter socket you could just buy a $5.99 one from ACE Hardware and cut it up with a whizer wheel.
