This is not exactly the hardest job in the world, but I thought I would give a shot at making a how-to. Let me know if you have any feedback or suggestions for improvement to the procedure.

This is really good. I like that you had the sense to offer a photo of the orientation of the parts before they're installed.

The only thing I'd recommend adding is the actual torque spec to step 9. I had to try and find the torque spec when I was installing new rotors on my Firebird yesterday and it would have been nice to have that bit of info handy.

Thanks. Glad you liked the photo of the way the parts go together before they were installed. Being able to visualize things like this helps me as well.

Good idea about the torque spec. I will add that to a revision of the how-to. I don't seem to see the torque spec listed in the owner's manual, yet it is in the workshop manual. I see it is recommended at 60 ft-lb for the wheel lug nuts and that is what I used.

EDIT: I'll also add a torque wrench under the tools needed section.
