Well I wanted to do a test fit before shipping them and in the process managed to make a little writeup about things not really covered in the instructions. This isn't really a step by step, but its to suppliment the instructions provided. I'm keeping it very simple:

Remove valve cover

Remove rockers



Put a line of RTV on the bottom of the supplied spacer. Then put it in place and use one of the supplied bolts to hold.

It depends, they're rubber so they are reusable plus mine are like 2000miles old so no sense in getting new ones.

can you drive it with different rockers in the front and back? Will it just run wobbly or what?
