Yes, go ahead and change the spark plugs. Even if running OK - no noticeable problems, there is risk of the spark plug threads corrosion over time - meaning the spark plug change possibly will involve cylinder head thread repair for damaged threads. Be sure when changing the spark plugs to place a small amount (one-two threads) of anti-sieze on the new spark plug threads.

Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.RockAuto.com, or www.autopartswarehouse.com for the replacement parts.
