genrally preload is around 20 thou but the lifters can accomodate up to 60 thou. If your valve train now is a tiny bit on the ticking side I wouldn't worry about it but if it's not and you are worried it is an acceptable practice to shim the pedastal so get a ten to fifteen thou washer and bolt the rockers down on to that. I run a washer under my adjustable yella terras to keep the same aspect ratio and so as not to load up the rollers. Remember rolers arent tensioned much at all.

If it was noisy before ? Then .020 isn't going to make it worse , better if anything???
Though EACH lifter should be prepared individually...
