spark plugs
 
have to change my plugs on my stock 93 ssei, what size socket and how do you guys get to the rear plugs?

I don't remember the size, but I think it's a 5/8" deep socket. My 3/8 socket set came with a special spark plug socket, so I never have to figure out what size it is. When you get your new plugs, just use one to see what socket fits.

I find it helps to remove the strut tower bar for more room to work on the rear plugs. They probably have a shield on each plug boot. Just pull it back, and try not to cut yourself when your pulling real hard and they pop off. Same with the plug wire boot themselves.

Yes, be careful not to cut yourself(like I did :bluecry: ). It might be easier to get the booties off the spark plugs if you twist them first and then pull straight back. Also, it would be a good idea to spread some di-electric(silicone)grease in the booties before you snap them on the new sparking plugs.
