Yep, my local AUTOZONE has let me down, i had searched their website and found my local store and it said they had the sparkplugs i needed, but when i went in, they didnt really have them, the only NGK dual electrode they had was the NGK Laser, wich makes me wonder, are the sparkplugs in the link below even dual electrode, i know it says it has 2 electrodes, but wth?? it shows no picture

Koolness...now do you have the right tools to install them? I'd recommend a 12" length of 3/8" hose to start the spark plugs so you don't accidentally cross-thread them.

Don't fergit to pick up some anti-seize... :D

lol i will, but do you really need the anti-seize?
whats its advantage?
Um...the intarweb is yer friend...really. ;)

Have you ever taken out a spark plug that didn't want to come out after it's useful life was up? Ever have one break on you? Try to git something like that out of yer 3.4L engine...without taking it half apart just to git to... ;)

i know bam, the invoice says sparkplugwires, but when ya run part number it comes up as something different, i know i can take it back to the store, but that is easier said than done for me, I DONT DRIVE!!!!!
when you buy something, you should GET WHAT IT SAYS, not something different, I have about had it with them, i beleive from now on for parts im goin to O'reilys, and yes i know about the fuelhose! that also requires a trip to a store!!

I will do so, as soon as i can make it over there, like i said, i dont drive, dad said he was searching the part numbers to that rubber thing, and said somewhere it said ya needed it for the duralast wireset? it looks like something to help get the sparkplugs started, so its use is basically the same as 3/8 fuel hose?
