if you go back page or two you'll see i had my car repainted, soon after than one of the lifter failed it was the 6.0 L76 engine the one with DOD. Lifter failed on it it had horrible knock to it. I was able to do all the work myself and replaced all the lifters with new cam. 6months later tranny wouldn't go into D, found low mileage tranny locally put it in and sold it to the guy in texas. He still has it

Do you think link bars would have sustained the lifters?

Always wondered if that upgrade is worth it.
