All you need is a 5/8 deep socket 3/8 drive it does not need to be a "thin-wall
to a high degree", Craftsman works fine. A 1/2" extension helps in the front. I
remove nothing but the rubber air intake for bank 1.

i used my old 30 yrs. spark plug socket(all craftsman stuff) i got a
93 3.0 taurus, GL. the ones in the front were easy.. the ones in the
back i could not see and had to go by feel.. do it in the morning when
the engine is cold and you can feel around and not burn or cut your
hands... and when you think you got the one in the back on the passenger
side by going from the drivers side then you got it made....
i dont remember what exactly extensions i used, i have then all, 2 in.
to 28 in. bars.. and a couple of 3/8 universal joints... if i remember
correctly the size of the plug is a little smaller then the older ford
plugs so you might go to auto zone and buy some, get the motor craft
plugs for about $1.20 each the same thing that is in the taurus now..
and then look for a socket for the plug....that way you know the one you
have is the correct size.....
Add this: Don't fight with a socket in tight quarters. Get a piece of
3/8 fuel hose about 8 inches long. Once the plug is loose slide the
hose over the plug and turn. Same for starting the new plug. Helps
