Default 5.4L Spark Plug Socket

I just ordered a spark plug socket designed for the 5.4L from Amazon. It's $17, the exact same socket from O'Reiley's is $29.90:

They have been in about 10K miles, I thought I would pull them, re-antiseize them, and re-install them.

Seems excessive, but its a good piece of mind.

That seems crazy expensive, i bought mine at advanced for under $10.

Its just a 9/16" spark plug socket?

It's a 9/16" socket with the correct length extension built as one piece.

Not a bad deal. I like the ones with a built in swivel.

i guess that is a nice added feature. it does kind of stink when the socket gets stuck down in there and the extension wont stay on.

Yeah it does, I'd probably buy one if I attempted to do them again.
