So it was not the followers but a few seized hydraulic valve lashers.
-Remove the valve cover.
-I zipped tied the timing chain to the cam sprockets but I don't feel it was necessary... Better safe than sorry I guess.
-I removed the cam cap on the driver's side of the engine
-I loosened the cam bearing caps from the driver's side to the passenger side in order to slightly tilt the cam to get to the followers. (do not remove the cam, just tilt it slightly to get to the followers, it does not take very much)
-Remove the follower that was previously determined to be loose.
-Under the follower you will see a nipple. that is the tip of the hydraulic lasher. Remove it gently with needle nose pliers.
-Install the new hydraulic lasher.
-Place the follower back over the lasher and the valve.
-Gently re-torque the cam (progressively) to 89 inch lbs. (that's about 7.7 to 8 ft. lbs. )
-REMOVE ZIP TIES!
-Turn engine over by hand to make sure all is good.
-Put valve cover back on.
-Crank engine with ignition module unplugged to build oil pressure.
