do it yourself for free (if you have all the tools anyway). Its really not difficult, especially if you're not all ham fisted about it and follow the FSM for torque values etc.

good luck, have patience, and may the force be with you.

Thanks for the info. I might check my values this weekend if it doesn't snow too bad this weekend.

Thank you Billman250
Brake booster, subframe bolts (had one a little loose), rear axle re-torque, now this.... Thanks for the heads up!

Just out of curiosity is there any way that you can check the to see if the valves have begun getting torched w/o taking off the entire top of the motor?

Nope, tune has nothing to do with it, this is mechanical. Get it checked out. Running too lean will just help speed up the process of cooking your overly tight exhaust valves.
