service manual, which one?
which one would be the best to buy? ie best illustrations, step by step clear etc...
for my bikes I always got the one from the dealer, but when I owned the Land rover I had one from another brand which was more in depth

In general the "factory" service manuals are the best for anything which can be repaired. They manufactured it, so it makes sense they would have the best service manuals.
In this case, as said above, you would order a GM factory service manual set from helminc.com or from a GM dealer. These would be about 4 books typically and around $135. And about 6000 pages total for the newer sets. (Very detailed and complete and specific to your year/model vehicle. Has diagrams, troubleshooting, descriptions of how things work, etc.)92 GMC Sierra 2500

I use Haynes, Chiltons, and anything else I can find. I try to buy them at swap meets and off of craigslist. No sense in paying more than you have to, and if you think about it, it is a very "green" thing to do.There is no way to happiness....happiness is the way.:yipi:
