They are very knowledgeable with LS engines and can get you the perfect setup for whatever your goals are. We had an in-depth conversation about how my truck will remain a daily driver and what I wanted to get out of the engine. With that, they suggested a cam, and then recommended all the supporting valvetrain components.
The rocker bearings are a common replacement for the 5.3 when you're adding power. Because my cam is producing more lift, they suggested the stiffer springs, and also hardened pushrods of different length due to the different lobe duration of the cam.
After doing a lot of reading on-line it was determined that the AFM/DOD lifters cannot handle high hp numbers. That's why I deleted my AFM. Since I was doing that, I went with corvette lifters, just because I could. My engine will never see the high rpms that they can support, but at least I know they can take it. If you do not have AFM then your lifters will be fine. I'm not sure if you have hydraulic roller lifters in your '05, but those will be a nice upgrade if you don't.
If you take a look at my "how to" on deleting AFM/DOD and VVT you'll see a list of all my part numbers. How to delete your AFM / DoD and/or VVT
Comp Cams, Summit racing, and GMpartdirect.com is where I bought everything from.
I hope this helps, and if you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask!
