Are you talking the caliper-to-mounting bracket torque specs? I usually turn them to between 10-20 ft. lbs., not much is needed as these are simply holding the caliper over the rotor, and you don't want to over-torque and cause the caliper to drag. You might also call a Chevy dealer service department for the answer.
