Luckily for me, the guys I bought my aluminum 5.3 from ran it on the dyno and found worn cam bearings before they shipped it to me, common problem I suppose? I don't know... I had them put a cam in and fix the bearings way cheaper than I could have done it. What heads do you have on it? I have a couple sets of heads, currently have the 799 heads on it.
My aluminum motor is a lm4 so the older trailblazer/envoy engine. It has 706 heads on it. Yea cam bearings are a common issue on these things but honestly what I've found is the cam retainer plate and rear cover gaskets are the number one killer of the cam bearings.
