I've updated the clear corners article to include the 92-99 procedure from Nytro67.
All years 92-current are now covered in this one article:

Ok, assembly Torque Specifications is done, posted to Techinfo, Specifications, article #13. This took awhile manually entering:

Quote:
Torque specifications for body/trim, suspension/steering, transaxle, and engine for 87-99 Bonnevilles.
Quote:
Assembly Torque Specifications
Disclaimer: As with all automotive procedures, refer to the
proper maintenance manual for correct steps/sequences. This
is meant as a quick-reference guide only. Some bolts require
additional rotation after torque (+70) or a particular
sequence, or a certain number of steps per torque. Pay close
attentiont to Ft/Lbs vs. In/Lbs. Some values were left out, as
these bolts really require a maintenance manual to do it correctly.
Also note the major differences between years/engines
Formatting is a little goofy, but it'* easy to follow.
I learned alot on this one. Many more differences between years/engines than I thought. Some very subtle. Take a browse through the list, and you'll see what I mean:

That one freaking hurt. I don't think the hand was up to it. Adding wheel lug torque, then going to bed. Gnight all.

Pretty good typing, for being one handed. How'd you learn to do that?

How about a list of OBD codes? Or just the more common ones.
