Why not just upload the pics to CL? This is what I always do. That way pics are here as long as this forum is up and running.

Hi Roadfrog,

I can't view your picture you posted. For the step you used a pry bar to push the engine. Do you still have the picture? It seems like I need a muscle guy help me to push while I take out the spark plug.

I would appreciate if you could provide me a little more details.

Thank you!

i used the crowbar method on one bank, then discovered the little plastic inverted devo hat rings that make removal of the coils FAR easier. No need to use the crowbar, just pull the coil up slightly and use a hooked tool to pop the ring up.

Ok.....I FINALLY uploaded the pics. Sorry all for the delay. Hopefully this will help y'all. I'm actually due for a replacement of the plugs again. Not in a hurry though, as the car runs smooth.

Thanks for the re-up of the pics... It's much easier to understand. Waiting till spring hits to take on this project but, it looks fairly easy even for someone who is just ok with car repairs...

Thanks !

I did it on my LS400 and LS430.... The 430 had a lot of stuff to remove and they look almost the same for stuff to move/remove.
