Default What is recomended with new set of rockers?

3800 Performance has a set of rockers from 350$ I believe. Can these work with my stock pushrods and springs, or should they be complimented with the new stuff also?

Pushrods and springs definately wouldn't hurt during a rocker swap, especially since you already have most of the work done when you get the rockers off. However, if you don't plan on revving much over 5800-6000rpms, it really isn't necessary IMO. I have heard a few horror stories about stock springs breaking with 1.9 rockers, but not too many. If it were me and I wasn't trying to rev very high I would go with rockers and INTENSE OR pushrods and call it good.

Hmm. $350. Looks like I might have to pick up some quick cash jobs. I really want to do rockers, pushrods, springs, and lifters, but I wanted to do it all at once, but couldn't make myself spend $500 I'd heard before for new rockers.

Unless your lifters are bad or you are doing a cam, new lifters are going to be pretty much useless to you. I wouldn't waste my money on them.

I figure that with a 158k and I can here some light ticking at idle and gets heavier at high (4k+) that is what is making the noise. Had a couple mechanics listen to it and that'* what they are thinking it is too.

well, you are gonna have it all apart anyways, so you oughta take a look at them to make sure they are causing the problems. Check what the vendors' return policies are.

Well, not exactly. I'm pretty sure you have to pull the intake manifold (and everything above it) off to get the lifters out. And thats a LOT more work than just pulling the valve covers for the rockers/springs/pushrods. Although I've never swapped out lifters in a L67 so I'm not sure what all you have to remove.
