It is always a good idea to use adjustable pushrods whenever you have installed a performance or reground camshaft. You will also need them if you have the heads shaved or block decked. Failure to use adjustable pushrods in these situtations can damage your engine. Standard hemi rocker shafts have no provisions for adjustment so any differences from stock dimentions must be compensated for with adjustable pushrods. Adjustable rocker shafts were used on factory high performance engines as well as industrial and some marine applications but they are expensive and hard to find. In most cases it is much easier to simply use the adjustable pushrods.

I don't know if this helps you, But I can't see having them shortened, when other options are available.
Good Luck..
