Default 4.7 Top Row Plugs????

Hey I was gonna change the top row plugs on my 4.7 but Im having a problem. I can get to them easy enough the problem is there set in such a small hole I cant seem to get a socket in there. A standard spark plug socket is way to big and even a thinwall craftsman seems very snug just barely in. Dont wanna get a socket stuck! Is there a special socket for this or somethin? Ive been working on engines for years and i hate the thought of paying a dealer. Any info please?
