I can say that since this is a pushrod engine you don't have to take the heads off. That's universal. click for full screen

http://www.justanswer.com/chevy/4cdaj-chevrolet-suburban-1500-lt-change-valve-lifters.html Whoa...that website just shot me down. Says heads, exhaust manifold must come off.Because the cylinder heads overlap the valve lifter area That will learn me to jump in to things I don't know. The heads come off on a pushrod engine??

Yes, on the ls family of engine the heads have to be removed to change a lifter. The retainer is only accessible after the head is removed.
