You'll need a set of pliers designed to remove the ignition wire boots from the spark plugs. Any auto parts store should have them. You'll also want a 3/8 socket wrench handle, various lengths of extensions and a universal joint to help you get into the tight spots. Wrap the universal joint with a couple of turns of electrical tape. The will take the "floppiness" out of it and will allow you to more easily get the socket on target without a lot of fumbling and swearing. Of course, you'll also want a spark plug socket for your type of plugs as well as a packet of anti seize compound and a spark plug gaping tool. Your auto parts store can help get you properly supplied.
