not really......please do not buy any electrical parts from autozone.....their electrical parts are junk! if you want plug wires, either get a set of stock motorcraft, or get the JBA's from wayne!

my owners manual says to replace them at 60,000 miles..........i usually check them out every time i change the oil....if they look bad then i will replace them....or i automatically replace them at about 100,000 miles........i have already had to replace mine on my '97 1 time since it was new....that is because they were dry rotting....i have 86,000 miles on my truck and did it about 5,000 miles ago...
