Question Difficulty installing rear spark plugs

I have a 1996 Continental V-8. The front 4 spark were difficult to install but I was able to do it. I can't get the rear 4 installed. bigjdog had posted on another thread that this was a pain.
Any suggestions?


Please don't post a different forum link. I've looked there.
Thanks

Acarp,
On my '95 I found it easy if you pull the fuel rail first. Not a big job, but don't lose the "O" rings for the injectors. The plug wire ends should be lubed w/ starter fluid just before you try to twist them in order to pull them out.
