The plugs weren't really that bad. Of course the front 3 were no problem and the driver side and middle rear plugs really weren't too bad if you come in from the bottom. the passenger side rear was the one that gave us a little trouble, but it really wasn't that bad once we removed 3 bolts from the alternator brackets and just pivoted it. You do not have to remove the serpentine belt or anything like that, just pivot the bracket. and it works really nice to have 2 guys working on it, that's the way i did it and it took us about 1 hr. to 1.5 hrs.
