Default Olds LSS Woes... Please aid if you can

I have a 95 LSS, series II, Non supercharged. (swap later, hence the handle.) It'* my third, Love the cars, but this one has some issues..

1.) rear driver'* window is inoperable.
2.) once under way, the traction off light comes on by itself, and isn't affected by pushing the buttin; it'* stuck off ?
3.) the allignment is off, it tracks to the left.
4.) when i hit any bump, small or large, the front end clunks pretty hard - but when i bounce the front end, it doesn't 'granny-drolic', the susp. seems fairly firm like my previous cars, even jumping on it with 2 people it .. is it possible the springs are just firm, and the struts are still junk?
5.) Intake Manifold Gasketts. (elbows too?)


So, with all that in mind, i've searched the site, i'll continue to do so -
Also, WHICH repair manual is the best!? - does GM offer a 'factory book' type thing, or is a chiltons going to cut the mustard? I need a good manual to walk me through ALL the problems I'll be fixing - listed above, and otherwise

Thanks,
-Joe

On #5 I'd be checking the front sway-bar end-links. I just put a FE2 rear sway-bar in the current Lesabre I'm driving and today I noticed clunking -the right rear sway bar end-link was MIA. Suspension seems to be firm otherwise.
I know when I bought my 1995 Bonneville SLE it was missing one of the end-links, and the other side was just a few miles away from rotting itself away.
