Default oversize lifters in a BBC

I plan to bush the lifter bores in my 2 tall decks, I know some sized them to Chrysler roller lifters.
What is common these days?

In my 540 BBC it has Isky EZX .904 lifters and your push rods will depend on your deck height and if your heads have been cut. You will need a push rod length checker to determine what length you'll need.

I'm going to use Comp .904" lifters in my dart big m block but I'm having trouble finding the lifter bushings I have tried to contact CHE to get their bushings same as used in the chevyhiperformance magazine but they don't answer... Where are you guys getting the bushings? I'll probably make my own but it takes alot off time and is not that cheap...

We machine alot of the .904 lifter bores in both SBC and BBC and rarely do we install bushings when going to the larger lifter bores.
