In the heads.......at the end of the spark plug wires
What a smartaxx, of course they are at the end of the wires, which have to be pulled off and the individual coil packs removed (moved out of the way). The plugs are recessed deep down and require an extension on your spark plug socket to reach them.

Mark and remove plug wires. Remove spark plugs and install new plugs. Reattach plug wire to correct plug.

Remove the individual coil packs located under the chrome fuel rails, just above the valve covers. Directley under the coil will be a spark plug boot, remove the boot & spark plug will be set into the hole. Will need about a 6" extention with a 5/8" spark plug socket to access.
