If they aren't ticking, I wouldn't worry too much about the lifters. Pushrods and rockers are easier to replace than the lifters. Once the rockers are off, the rods come right out. I have a set of 80k miles OEM pushrods if you think you need to replace yours.

Aren't they roller lifters? They last forever.

well i think they would need to be shorter pushrods to make up for the shorter height in the head. i have an adjustable pushrod from when i did my trans am heads ( milled 3 times, 1.9 RRs cam ) i know on different after market cams they change the base lobe of the cam to get more lift, but the stock lifters will adjust a certain amount also before colappsing. the heads have to be on the car so i can use the adjustable pushrod thought.. i see the roller lifters going bad around 200k on a few 5.3s 120 k on my t/a

245k miles on my OE lifters w/ LS6 springs, 1.9:1 rockers, and OR pushrods since 80k. Lots of revs to 5800-6000 during that time!
