take off your intake and that makes it easier, that one is a major PITA and you have to be very carefull. i suggest you use a inch or inch and a half extension, put it on the socket and put the socket on the plug, then attach your ratchet to the extension. once it's loose you can remove it the rest of the way by hand, i'd leave the socket on the plug and just spinn the socket by hand

On my friends stang, I had to u plug the wire that leads to the fuel injector. It also helps if you've got that ratchet extension that allows you to give it an angle. (Not sure what its called)

Yeah. Just a socket and ratchet. No extension and its good. You have to dislocate your elbow to reach it though.... Just kidding. But yeah
Get your socket. Put it in the spark plug. Get the ratchet. And plug that in. And wrench away
