For the life of me I can’t do anything with the top spark plugs on my Spirit. I can get my fingers on them , but my sockets just won’t turn them. Anybody know any trick or method for getting them out?

What about OEM tool/socket? Those are build to match with all the grooves etc.

Yep, OEM socket in the tool kit. You can get it separately if you don't have one

The spark plug socket must be "thin walled" so your regular socket may not fit. Best to get one with the rubber insert that holds the plug during removal.

Craftsman 12 point thin wall socket works but as mentioned a stock toolkit socket works really well. Yes I realize you live out of the US but...
