Default Rear Spark Plugs, Help!!!! (Nevermind, Im done)

Man Spark plugs freakin suck. Im done with the fronts and now Im at the backs.

Do I spin the T Handle clockwise or counter?

I wanna at least know If Im turning things the right way so I wont get them in any tighter. I dont think these plugs have ever been changed.

it helps if you remove the strut bar. Do not do that from the strut bolts, instead from the bolts that are in the bar.

Unless they're the extremely Rare Left handed Eskimo walrus tusk threads, it'* the same direction as the fronts.
Counterclockwise.
Imagine doing it from the drivers seat.... without a firewall...

Hey ! I didn't know freshwater fish could type.... ( "dum Bass")
Let alone change spark plugs.... hail Master!

If the wrench handle is pointing up when the socket is on the plug, push it towards the driver side to loosen.

I was just going to suggest this. If the handle is pointing towards the drivers side, push down on the handle, if it'* pointing to the passenger side, pull the handle up. to loosen
