Went to my local Autozone and he said they didn't have any in stock and their supplier didn't have any either.

Is this normal? I checked JC Whitney and they want $8.64 EACH for them. They can't be that expensive now are they? I remember paying $42.00 (with tax) a few years ago for 16 of them.

Just checked Summit and they have the NGK's for $3.39 each. Much better.

Bought a set from O'Reilly's for $1.69 each (had to wait a day for the order, but that was OK). Advance was a similar price. Funny story: tried to order from Advance a year or so ago. They wouldn't ship "free", 'cause the computer thought the plugs weighed 28# EACH!

Here in NZ they cost US$20 each or $320 a set from the Dodge dealer. They have a healthy profit margin happening here. Me thinks I will buy in the States and ship them over.Got to be cheaper.

That's crazy! I'm sure one of our members can get them for you here in the States and ship them to you

The O'reillys where I get parts had them when I did mine. Don't remember the price though.

just a dumb question? what is the reason for using NGK 5306 plugs.isnt it best to use what it came with?
i have turned a wrench for many yrs and have had so many problems with changing to different brand plugs.
i just dont want to change them twice
