Remove carefully, engine being cold. Aluminum heads have fragile plug
threads. Replace with new plug winch should normally be pre-gaped at
.043 in (for Bosch Platinum plugs the gap is .032). Tighten snugly but
don't use too much force. (I used torque wrench at 15 ft/lb) Replace
coil module and reconnect wire and you are done.
Most Echo owners consider the Denso (Part #SK16R11) or NGK (Part #IFR5T11) Iridium plugs to be the best replacement for this vehicle and they can both last for 100,000+ miles.
Good luck and happy new years.

SOURCE: Torque specs for spark plugs
Honestly, I know of no mechanic you actually uses a toque wrench on Spark plugs. Change them after engine has cooled as the heads are aluminum. Use anti-seize on the threads, and SNUG the plugs. Not TIGHT,,,,,, SNUG. It is a feel that you acquire.

A Ball Joint Can Usually Be Replaced Without Removing The Control Arm From The Vehicle. Place The Vehicle On Jack Stands. Remove The Shock Absorber And Install A Spring Compressor on The Coil Spring.Remove The Nut Securing The Ball Joint To The steering Knuckle And Separate The Knuckle And Then Joint. The Ball Joint Should Be Pressed,Riveted,Bolted,Or Screwed Into The Control Arm.A Service Manual Will Give The Details For The Specific Make And Model Vehicle.
