the only reason one would need adjustable roller rockers is for a solid roller setup.

In which, you should NOT be using ls7 lifters. lol.

The "cheap" ones are Yella terras, but some people have reported problems with them cracking.

other than that, you are looking at roughly $800-$1000 for a good set.

I like pre-load to be somewhere around .060-.080. with more favor to the high side, than to low.

One more question... How much pre load on the LS7 lifter?

Thanks!!
The Factory Rockers are a Pretty Solid Performer, with a Comp Cams Trunion Upgrade which we supply with all of our cam kits.

For 160 bucks and a little work you can't go wrong.
