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
Use a rachet on the front and loosen one there...
Don't make any changes to the tool and it will automaticly be correct for the rear!
Can't get any simpler than that...

Finally

I learned my lesson, dont try turning with your wrist, kind of get it to a angle so you can put your whole body weight into it.

And always change your spark plugs early, dont wait 131,000 miles.(Someone post a link of bad plugs yah? I wanna see how my old ones compare)

Now you know and knowings half the battle.

Morning everyone.. OMG.. thanks for the giggle this morning.

Working with old plugs like that is sometimes a matter of the right tools. Next time you are at sears get the 3/8'* ratchet with the long handle and pivoting head. You'll never regret it.. one of the best $20 I spent.

The long handle gives you nice leverage in spots like this...
