Hi there,

what I do is roll the push rods over a sheet of glass, this will show you fit they have any bend in them, if so replace them, if ok re use them, if you are replacing the rockers replace the push rods as a set.

If this is a 4.1L and you are replacing the lifters because they are dished, you need a camshaft as well.
