all you need is an 8-10 inch pivot extension. under $10 at pep-boys. doesnt even need to pivot honestly.
edit: forgot about the wires, do you know how to instal/remove those using the supplied tool?

get the right sized sparkplug socket form your local pep boys, canadian tire, etc, (if you don't have one) and a long extension, and a ratchet, and crack on 2 those suckas!

be sure to use the spark plug threading stuff if you have an aluminum block. bad things happen when you dont.
