    I stand corrected on the axle nut torque value in post #3. The 109 lb ft came from a '98 Seville Service Manual. Checking my '04 Deville Service Manual I find the 118 lb ft value.

    The word "Factory" does not appear anywhere on the covers of the 3 different GM product Service Manuals currently in my library.

    Most people use the term "Factory Service Manual", when referring to the manual used by a dealer service department, as opposed to inferior parts store repair manuals (such as Haynes or Chiltons).
