    No, the lifters ride on the cam lobes. Push rods from the lifter moves the rocker arm. Only the MDS lifters have a spring inside, others are solid.

    Re: WK Eagle Head 5.7 hemi

    Jelo, yes that is what needs to be done. The needle bearings in the lifters fail that then leads to cam damage. If any lifter is defective, then the cam will also be damaged and must be replaced.

    Cherokee Re: 2016 TrailHawk 4x4 A/T

    Reading on the US Jeep forums, recommend change engine oil with high spec oil every 3000MILES, not km. Also if engine "tick" persists, indicate lifter problems, like the hemi engines.
