Default Spark Plug Wires.

Motorcraft
WR4112
or
WR4113

1997 Mercury Sable GS Vulcan Engine.

What is the difference between these two listed spark plug wire sets?

Every source I visit on net states both fit my car. True or not true? And what is difference between WR4112 and WR4113?

Searching by part number at Rock Auto - looks like '12 has cranked plug boots (about a 30 degree bend halfway up) where '13 has straight.

I'm trying to replace exactly what I have.

Does this picture help?

Are these the 12 or 13?

I got some closeout wires that were the same for $12 a couple of weeks ago from RockAuto. They were not motorcraft, but were the same as you have shown. I just bought according to year and engine.

Looks like 12, but refer to the picture at your parts site. Your spark plug boots are cranked... 30 degree bend about halfway up.

Thanks for responses.

I am going to go with the Motorcraft WR4112.

I still don't know why there are two different sets for same year though.
