I was just wondering how big of a pain the spark plugs are to change on a 93. I was looking at it the other day and the driver's side seams pretty easy but the passenger side is another story. Do I have to take something else out to get at them? Thanks guys.

This topic has been discussed many times on the boards. Try a search for spark plugs and I'm sure you'll find plenty of threads.

The consensus here is that the driver's side is easy, while the passenger's side is a little more difficult. Many guys here (like me) have had success in getting to them from the top of the engine. A ratchet, a spark plug socket, a swivel, and a couple of extensions was all I needed to get mine out. Others here have opted to go through the wheel well to get at the rear plug. I haven't tried that, but I've heard that it works too. Just take your time, be patient and you'll get them.
