Torque Specs Etc

Fixing to do some things like brakes, suspension etc.
Does anyone know where to find a good source for torque specs and the like?

I found this but I do not know how good it is:

2015 Chevrolet Impala Auto Repair Manual - ChiltonDIY
Besides Chilton/Haynes , there are several other on-line auto manual sources. I like to get a Haynes or Chilton manual for hardcopy and also have some sort of electronic source.

I think alldatadiy.com is the primary source. That is, they create or have the factory shop manuals, so their on-line stuff is the best reference, as I've been told. (for GM)

As for torque specs in particular, I've been generally pleased with my Haynes/Chilton books, altho I've found a few things lacking in support of my Chevy Cruzes. (BTW, to be clear, Haynes and Chilton are both part of the same company. For my Cruzes, I have both manuals, and they appear to have the same info in them. So only one is needed.)

My suggestion is to get the 20-25 dollar Chilton or Haynes hardcopy manual and see how far you get, then look into adding an online subscription. The alldata stuff is $20 for 1 year, or $35 for 5 - I have the latter for my daughter's Ford Escape. It's not perfect, but between that and the Haynes, I've got most of it covered.
...
This just in (via Google): https://www.autoeducation.com/free_repair_manuals.htm

According to the linked article, Autozone now owns alldata , and much of that info is now available thru autozone.com . Read the article for more info.

HTH.

If your socket set is all the same brand, you might be a city slicker.

No luck with the AutoZone site.
I went with the Chilton e-manual. 30 bucks for a year the subscription and it is indeed for the newer bodystyle.

Seems to have everything I was looking for:
-Torque values
-Which are TTY bolts (onetime use bolts that need replacing)
-Step by step instructions
-Etc...

I like to get the hardcopy book and use it with the on-line stuff. I'll print out drawings and other stuff from the website and stuff it into the book in the corresponding chapter to augment what's there.

If you cant find the manufactures recommended torque spec, Fastenal has a great technical reference.

Here is anohter hidden-gem of a site that I recently found out about:

https://www.roswell-nm.gov/1112/Chil...Repair-Library

It's an online Chilton library for just about every car - and it's all 100% free (they post the password right on the main page).

Wish I knew about this long ago....

Your right about the hidden gem!!! I didn't compare side to side with my $30 subcribed version, but they look very similar and had all the info I was looking for. Save yourself some money and look at jtrosky's link first. You won't be sorry

Has anyone tried this lately? It's asking for more info now

It now re-directs the user to this page: http://www.elportalnm.org/

There you click on the ChiltonLibrary.com link where you see this below.

I'm bummed.

Here is another link/password to access the Chilton library - not sure how long it will last (that previous one was around for a long time and just suddenly quit working):
