if its 91 and later its too easy.
put them in untill all the marks line up, turn the motor over a couple times with the pushrods out, or collapsed to make sure they still all line up and your done. its not like the old ones with shims and all that craziness... but ya, get a manual.

its easy, but get a shop manual

you could probly go to a stealership and they'd photocopy it out of a book for you

I used this post for my 2001. The manual was no help, it didn't even match the markings on the cams like the pic in this thread does. Thats how I found this post, because I couldn't figure the manual out, all I needed was the picture. It was easy to do, but getting the lifters up while installing the cams correctly was a pain in the ass.
