They are a little longer than the stock wires. What is everyone doing with the extra wire. I thought about rotating the coil end to take up the slack but wasn't sure if I should. They are rubbing on the engine compartment with the extra length. Second they rotate on the plugs easily. I pushed them on until they clicked and have no misfires but can move them easily. I just thought they would be a tighter fit (Insert Joke here).

I twisted the connection at the coil just a bit and they have been trouble free for a couple years now.

There is a shorter version but I've never felt the need to change.

What Blades said.
I cut the metal rings out of them, and zip tied the sleeve (metal zip ties) to the ceramic piece/boot that goes to the spark plug, that way they don't slide up or down.
Go with 9004C next time, they are shorter.

Twisted the wire at the coils so there was no slack and has been good since. When the ceramic was against the header it chattered a bit. Also found the driver header was hitting the cradle just a touch but enough to cause noise. Adjusted enough to keep it from hitting under load.
