Head studs? Did you blow the head gaskets?

I don't know of any good ones, but I will say STAY AWAY from Gabrielli Truck Sales. They couldn't even diagnose a high pressure oil system leak correctly. Cost me a grand for a new ICP sensor and it DID NOT fix the issue. I spent a few hours reading up on the high pressure oil system here and figured out my problem, then fixed it myself for under $100.

You realize you need to find a machine shop capable of milling these heads? They also have to be checked for flat/straight and magnafluxed for cracks. If they mill the heads, they can not remove more than 0.008" to achieve flat, or the heads will have to be replaced.
The block surface should be checked as well.
Do this step, use stock FORD head gaskets and use the proper torque sequence and your head gaskets should last a very long time.
