Default Recommended new plug leads

Hi

We have a (misfiring, misbehaving) 2005 classic 2.4 non-turbo, 78000 kms (49000 miles).

Plugs replaced by me and 3 visits to the Chrysler Dealer and they can't find the problem. Latest suggestion is the crankshaft sensor. No codes showing though.
I have suggested replacing the leads but they say they are fine.

I have done a bit of searching re. leads. One thread recommended Mopar leads from RaceandStreet.com but I have been there and can't find a thing (terrible website), and I need to ship to New Zealand too.

Any help appreciated.

I just tried R&S forum and could not find plug wires. I ordered my MOPAR performance wires from my Chrysler dealer that I put on our 2006.

Thank you for the replies.
We have some progress after another break-down yesterday, in rush-hour traffic...
We now have an 0335 error code - the crank sensor and apparently this can cause the symptoms we have been experiencing.
$50 to replace so it is on order.
Fingers crossed and we will probably buy the higher spec plug wires as well.

You are getting it from a dealer. Our PT's do not like aftermarket sensors, only OEM.

As others have said-- use OEM sensors, and DO NOT use OEM wires. Ever. Use anything BUT.

A lot of people have reported good results with MSD wires-- but anything other than OEM will be an upgrade.
