Questions about roller rocker installation.

If I get 1.8" non adjustable roller rockers, would I need anything else?

I've been seeing shims and all kinds of stuff, but I don't know what I need. I've read on the site that the stock springs will work but what else would I need?

The rotating assemply and heads are all stock. Then I won't need anything else?

Cool, thanks.

When would you need shims and stuff?

shims usually if you have a big cam and you dont upgrade pushrods. But new pushrods would eliminate the need for shims.

new pushrods dont necessarily prevent the use of shims. I have a big cam, longer rods and shims
