    Factory service manuals. Look for them on E-bay. They are year/make/model specific.

    do a search on ebay. I got mine for $15 shipped! Try searching for 1987 chevrolet service manual (I think that was the terminology I used). You will get some other chevy crap as well, but it should get the job done.

    For my 90 its not listed under Full Size Jimmy. Its under R/V/P models. So I searched up a 87 Chevrolet R/V/P and came up with this.... R/V/G/P Service Manual Kit If you click on models covered it lists 87 Blazer/Suburban.... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Haynes manual is worth it too, costs $15. it doesn't have everything but every little bit helps when you're stumped.
