Johnson lifters aren't really available at the moment. I do have a new set of LS7 lifters but have read there have been issues.

Is there any other alternatives to LS7 and Johnson?

Thank you,

John

Have you tried Matt? He had some sets. I got mine from him in his post 3 days ago he said he had a few more sets

I'm running Morels with link bars.

I know a couple people that are using Thompson Motorsports Lifters. They are LS7 bodies with TMS custom internals. They seem to be holding on very well.

I'm not a big fan of Morels myself based on having used a couple part numbers in the past but we can supply them. We do have a few sets of 2110 left at $429. When those are gone everything will go up significantly.
Matt, what's significantly? Are we talking $100 increase....or more?

I've been using Morel 6504s. Been 40k drama free miles & they were under $200.

Johnson’s for the win! Your going through all the effort and cost for the cam swap/ heads another 2-250$ isn’t going to matter for piece of mind

You are not wrong. Problem is I hastily bought the LS7 lifters assuming I could not get Johnson lifters.

Throw them up in the classifieds someone will buy em, Would suck to miss out on the 2110’s especially at current price, I’d imagine Matt could gouge the price a bit if he wanted to do to the supply shortage

Fair people on this forum are here to help, and the fact that he gave everyone advance warning before the major price increase solidifies his place here as an honest vendor. I bought my cam and related parts through him and he has always been clear with his advice.
