The 4.6 does not have an traditional distributor. This year engine should have two coil packs located on the front of each valve cover. Each coil pack controls four cylinders. Some of the plug wires will cross over the front of the engine in a wire loom on top of the alternator. The spark plugs are located down in the intake manafold. they run beside the fuel rail on each side of the intake manafold where it joins to each head. You will need an extention at least 8 to 10 inches long to get at the spark plugs. The plug wire fit snuggly into the intake manafold and have an extention on them that connects to the spark plug.

Testimonial: "thanks, that's just what i needed to know "
Raise car under frame then put jack under axle before removing the shock.
Can use locking pliers to hold the shaft from turning (may have to cut away dust boots). Top nuts are accessed and can be seen from the wheel wells or from the gap between the trunk and mount frame (can't see nut from this angle). Take care with fuel lines near the driver side nut.
Preventing shafts from turning on new shocks will be tough. Make sure you have a proper tool to fit top of shaft with enough room between top of shaft and trunk (gap decreases as the nut is tightened) so the tool can be removed.

There are eight COPs (coil-on-plugs) to remove. Using a 7mm or 9/32" socket, remove each bolt securing each COP to the intake manifold on top of the engine. Remove all eight COPs, and the spark plugs are underneath. When replacing the spark plugs, use only the proper Ford/Motorcraft plugs, even if they cost twice as much as the aftermarket ones. You will avoid further headaches this way. Hope this helps.
