getting studs installed and have questions

Ok guys my truck is at the dealership with blown headgaskets! They are going to install arp studs and have the heads checked. I was wondering what questions I should ask so we don't overlook anything. My truck has a S&B intake and straight pipe no cat or muffler and a edge cs. Thanks for the help this site has really helped this first time diesel owner

Nearly every truck I've heard of that had dealer installed studs have failed-the dealer may SAY they'll check the heads, but that just means that they will have .02 or less warpage-that is too much. Even "new" heads are sometimes out of spec. The heads NEED to be machined FLAT. Not close, but FLAT.
