I didn't re-install heat shields because I was tired and didn't want to deal with them.

I'm hoping the rubber boots don't melt.

I think most people forget to put them back on, I know I did.

I remember Rogue saying the engine pull bracket woujd make it easier...and actually through conversations, I believe he changes his plugs only from the right side. However the end result is use what works best for you.
Not sure what you consider right or left, but I do mine from the passenger side with my left hand

Easy. And I'm not tall, nor do I have long arms.

Those plugs look like the same condition mine were on the S10. Also just to let you know, those are the stock plugs, and they are the 100k ACDelco Double Platinum plugs, the same exact ones in my S10, except mine were in worse shape.

Your arm must be triple jointed and about 5 feet long.

It is all in the technique Having headers helps somewhat as well.

(Off topic agreement with Rogue, Headers rock!)

In the FSM and all things car related, Right and Left are determined from sitting in the driverseat facing forward.

In other terms.
Driver side = Left
Passenger side = Right

Never seen a plug like that before...I thought that was some kind of deposit on the electrode.

As to the 2000 LeSabre having no strut bar, I can confirm that on the 2004 LeSabre. It seems that instead of a separate strut bar, it'* kind of "incorporated" into the uni-body.

GM also pushed the engine back toward the firewall some 6 inches compared with the older H-body...this makes getting to the front plugs and exhaust WAY easier, but getting to the rears MUCH harder.
