Hello everyone, I’m looking for the torque specs and sequence for the head, I’m doing a head gasket replacement and don’t want to mess anything up, also the torque specs for the intake manifold as I will change that gasket as well. Links appreciated!
On a side note, my suspension is pretty worn, and I’d like to lower it a little to make the 15”s feel more set in, does anyone have a recommendation and a setup, and how much you lowered it, pictures would be awesome!

Check page EM-4 for the valve cover torque. I didn't see a specific torque sequence, but I'd use the head bolt method (inside to outside, on page EM-18). I'd tighten down the bolts until you start to get the valve cover seated, and then torque in sequence to what looks to be 7-12 ft-lbs.
