Hello fellow trx friends. I'm at the mileage to change the spark plugs, atleast I want to. 45,000. I have a cammed 5.7 ram and my tuner recommended NGK 2309 a step cooler. Heard they offer better acceleration and such. My post is about me asking what is the best way to change these plugs? From the top or from the bottom? Remove fenders and tires? Do you guys use alittle Dialectric grease on the boots? Torque spec? Thanks in advance. Pic for attention.

Ended up finding time to change the spark plugs. Used NGK 2309 gapped at 0.028. Torqued to 20 LBS. Did the passenger side from the top. I'm tall and have long arms. So passenger side was cake. The driverside was horrible. Couldn't do anything from the top. Ended up jacking the front up, left the tire on. And removed the inner fender. 3 inch extentions did the trick. I was able to torque them all. Was happy about that. Had to pull on the boots pretty hard..so I put alittle Dialectric grease on the boots. The truck idles much better, more quiet I guess I can say. It accelerates much harder and the tune to the exhaust sounds nice. Haven't drove enough for gas mileage. Cause some say these plugs are one step colder, not sure if that effect gas mileage.

I agree the plug change to NGKs affected performance and exhaust but some of our fellow members disagreed.
