    Preferred shop manual and source?

    So I'm going to change the pads on the car, the parking brake shoes, the rear hubs, and an oxygen sensor. I'd love a shop manual so I don't have to keep coming here and asking for help. Does the forum have a preferred manual, or should I just go see what Haynes has?

    Thanks in advance.

    The lowest cost source of most info is Alldata DIY - less than $30/year for a one year subscription (onliine lookup) with discounts available for multi-year or multi-car model subscriptions.

    The most complete source, excluding TSBs, is a full Shop Manual (3 big books) from Helms, Inc. About $135 the last time I looked.

    I will always recommend factory service manuals. I have the Helms ones, and like them. It gets bulk having the three large manuals, but I like having the actual book to flip through, but that is just a personal preference.
