Which do some of you guys think is the better repair guide for a caddy? (1998 SLS specifically)

Spend the $$$ for an OEM FSM. In addition to the correct information, the code processes, RPO information, and part numbers are invaluable.
Neither are any good for anything but the most basic repairs. Follow Submariners advice and get a FSM by Helm Inc. Ebay is your friend.
The Chilton manual I had was such a waste I gave it away even thou I was offered $$$.
Watch ebay. Should be able to locate a 97, 98, or 99 Helms manual for about $70 plus shipping.

Might luck out and find one for $30 plus ship.

Do not pay $100.

Also, if you approach your serv mgr at dealer, he might agree to sell you an old manual, as most shops now use the computer.
Bought my '98 FSM for 40 on ebay. Keep looking
Good Idea. I got an old one for another car off the Chevy Dealer years ago. I'll see if I can snag up one for the caddy. :thumbsup:
