Thanks for the suggestion on the wire method. It worked perfectly. I even had to use it on the #4 coil (passenger's side closest to the firewall) because I couldn't get enough leverage on the tool to remove the coil.

Here' s pic of the broken coils and the removed plugs. The plugs don't look to bad after a little over 37k miles.
Busted coils is why I just used my fingers to remove the coils; the plastic gets brittle quick with the heat of the engine.
