Nope. Just pull the old ones off (make sure you dont mix up the spark plug wires. check the contacts on the ICM and clean if dirty, put the new ones on and enjoy!

A bit of di-electric grease will help the spark plug connections from corodeing.
Dont over torque the small coil pack machine screws, you dont want to strip them.

Hey thanks guys, that is what I like about this club, everyone is always ready to help out.

The di-electric grease is what I was wondering about. I'll pick some up this weekend.

Thanks so much,

Tim
