Hi guys, It's been a while since I have been on here. I am getting ready to change the plugs in my '09 Ram 1500 with a 4.7L.

I was wondering what are the torque specs are for the spark plugs?

IIRC its 11ft-lbs. I would have to check. Let me get back to ya. I JUST changed mine like a month ago too.

Make sure you get the tool from autozone to remove the boots, or you will tear them. at $42 a piece, it could be worse, but when you start tearing 3, 4 or 5, it can get spendy.

FWIW, generally, with plugs, I just check the gap, and get them to german torque specs...Gutenteicht (Goodandtight) :D

The Chrysler Tech Authority manual says 20 ft/lb. Tighter than I expected. :158:

Thanks for the help! I did them today and it worked out better than I thought it would I just took my time and did them one at a time (only the top eight).

I torqued them down to 120 in/lbs (10 ft/lbs). I hope that is enough!:4-dontknow:

You will be fine. Its rare that a plug comes loose in a head. The difference between 10 and 20 ft. lbs is not substantial.

I cant see even bothering to hit plugs with a tq wrench. Snug em down and 1/8th turn should be more than enough force keepin em in
