Default Dodge hemi sparkplug swap on ram 2500.. Brake booster in the way.

What am I overlooking here? How do you get at cyl 5 & 7? There is only a 2.5" gap between the coil pack area and the brake booster.

is it the booster or the master cylinder in the way? if its just the master drop the two bolts and drop to the side. if its the booster then you would have to pop the engine mount on that side and roll the engine up on a jack.

it might be easier to drop the booster if you can't roll the engine.

I removed the inner fender on an 05 1/2 ton to get to the driver side rear plugs easier.

Drop the spark plug socket in,drop a 3" extension in. Somtimes you need to use a 1" extension too. Loosen plug and remove extensions and sockets one at a time. The first one I did I was like wtf did they do that for,but now they are cake.
