I bought this set from Sears on sale: #009-42274, a 3-piece magnetized wobble extension spark plug socket set by K-D. Extensions are 4, 6, and 11 inches.
Bought torque wrench on sale also: Digitork #009-44596 (5-80 ft-lbs).
You can look these tools up on line or in their specialty tool catalog.
Advance Auto Parts, Auto Zone, and O'Reilly's all have the Champion Copper Core 570's at $1.99. Just bought them a week ago. Cite the on-line price and ask for a price match.
My owner's manual ('08) calls for 0.043" gap. Have seen everything from 0.040" - 0.045" for these plugs in this application. Interesting...... I do remember that the gaps had increased significantly on my factory set after 32K miles; they were probably somewhere in the mid-50's..
Since my spark plugs are coming due in 4k miles (60k total miles), I'll look to see if anything is abnormal and worth reporting here.
