We have the best LS7 lifters for your engine!
The best hydraulic lifters for LS series engines are genuine GM LS7 lifters. Malex Motorsports stocks the best LS7 lifters in these GM Gold Clip LS7 lifters, giving you peace of mind that your engine is going to be running with the latest OEM technology.
The best LS7 lifters will play an active role in protecting your engine; cheaper lifters are well-known to start out as noisy, before that noise becomes a symptom of deeper issues. We know this as the “LS lifter squeak”, and it occurs when the roller seizes or the lifter spins in the lifter bore – this means that the lifter is now making contact with the cam lobe side on. When you hear that, it’s often too late and the camshaft has been irreversibly damaged. Simply using higher-quality hydraulic lifters made with genuine GM parts can go along way from saving you from a lot of trouble down the track.
What goes wrong with cheaper lifters?
Cheaper models of hydraulic lifters will often feature rollers that ae made of a softer metal, and sometimes oiling of the roller can be an issue as the shape of the lifter body may distribute the oil away from the roller and cam lobe. The internal parts of the lifter can also let go causing the lifter to collapse internally. The check valve can also leak causing the lifter to bleed back when the engine is off.
On the other hand, high-quality hydraulic lifters made with genuine parts are easy to install – they’re a drop-in solution – and they are proven to offer greater durability over the life of the engine. You’ll be able to drive your vehicle with the peace-of-mind that you won’t have to worry about the trademark “squeak” of failing lifters.
