instead of helicoils for the plug go with an insert kit from auto zone.the kit comes with a tool to smack to spread the insert.the outer diameter has spikes that bite into the surrounding metal.

What keeps the bushings in place when tensioning the plug ?
Works the same as a helicoil, I put it on the plug then screw it in with loctite and run it. Not a great fix but I have used it when one is stripped bad

The insert kits work awesome with stripped plugs as Jughead stated i think the kit i use is by save a thread also and came with a tap, punch, and some different size inserts. Never had a problem with them coming out and I've done several.
