They are not great quality, pretty bad actually. Crane Energizer rockers are on sale now and they are much better quality.

Inexpensive rockers use inexpensive bearings.

You must have roller tip rockers. I assumed you meant full roller rockers, with roller bearings instead of "that half dome peice" (pivot ball). With the quality of metallurgy seen in inexpensive Chinese products, you may still have problems with them. Lets hope not.

BTW, roller tips have questionable value. Motion studies by Edelbrock showed they don't rotate at some engine speeds, and rotate backwards at others.

so long as they give me more valve lift, or do something good for my engine i will be happy. i just cant justify $400 for a set of Crane full rockers. im not made of money, and if i was gonna spend buku bucks on an engine i wouldnt waist my time and money on a 2.8. i just want to do a really cheep rebuild. this motor came out of my GT and is going in to my 2m4. i have thase rockers, a new timing set, and a 2030 cam
