Hi, I would like to know the proper torque values for the front brake caliper, and brake caliper bracket bolts on a 2003 Impala 3.8. The Haynes manual has them stated as 70 ft-lbs for the caliper and 133-148 ft lbs for the bracket. However several online sources, including a video from auto parts supplier has the values at 90 for the bracket and 50 for the caliper itself. I would like to know what GM recommends. Thanks.

GM specifies 70 for the caliper and 133 for the bracket. Bracket bolts get blue loctite.
