Disclaimer: As with all automotive procedures, refer to the
proper maintenance manual for correct steps/sequences. This
is meant as a quick-reference guide only. Some bolts require
additional rotation after torque (+70°) or a particular
sequence, or a certain number of steps per torque. Pay close
attentiont to Ft/Lbs vs. In/Lbs. Some values were left out, as
these bolts really require a maintenance manual to do it correctly.
Also note the major differences between years/engines.

WHEEL LUG TORQUE:

Clean rotor and wheel mating surfaces very well. Apply a SMALL drop of oil (motor oil is fine) to each threaded stud to allow for consistent torque. Torque all 5 lugs in a star pattern to 80 Ft/Lbs. Then tighten all 5 in a star pattern to 90 Ft/Lbs. Finally, tighten all 5 lugs to 100 Ft/Lbs, again, in a star pattern. This will help fight the dreaded warped rotors the H bodies are notorious for.
