Change spark plugs and tubes?

I will soon need to change the spark plugs in my 97 base as I am approaching 90K. Do most change the plugs, tubes, and o-rings -- or just the plugs?

Thanks!

Weird. My overheat light started flashing today on the temp gauge and my gauge read 180 degrees. I cut the car off, then on and it went a away. I assume just a quirk.
