I use a combination of FSM, Haynes (the photos can be more useful than the illustrations in the FSM) and the forum. Seems the most sensible way to do it. Ideally, your poll needs a "combination of these" option to fully cover all the bases.
I've got the FSM for my 96 and I'm getting a 98 FSM for the niner.

By the way, page 1-2 of the Haynes manual where it lists the fluid capacity for a drain and refill of the automatic transmission fluid, it says 4 quarts. I have a 5.9 and did a fluid and filter change. Added four quarts and thought I had toasted the transmission. It didn't want to go into gear, to the point that you would have to hit the accelerator to get it to stick. Then it would randomly shift between 3rd and 4th. Checked the fluid and it was low. Once I added the right amount, it shifted fine. Is the manual wrong? Is it wrong for all model years, or only '98?
