    Came off about a month ago, now it's come off again. I'm running MSD wires. Could it be I'm in need of new shocks up front in a bad way? MSD have a problem with this?

    dont know about the msd wires but you should just be able to crimp the plug connecter a little tighter then pop her on again. i do it all the time.

    Is there any slack in the wire? I had the same problem after changing out my wires too. Had to go with a long wire. My 350, has the plugs under the exhaust manifold.
