Looks like GM sold them 20 to a bag but I don't see anyone having them in stock. OEM ones seem to go for about 5 bux each. Rockauto has them aftermarket . MELLING MRM1724 for $2.60 for a pack of 4.

And each lifter takes one right?

What you're calling lifters are called rocker arms. The lifters are inside the engine.
Rocker arm retainers are the little plastic buttons that hold the rocker arms from moving side to side. To make installing them easier soften them up by putting the new plastic retainers in boiling water and use a socket extension and a small hammer to smack them in the hole. If you remove the rocker shaft assembly don't overtighten the bolts. They're very easy to snap.

Here's the rock auto link for them

Buy a bunch extra in case you break some. There's one for each valve, two valves per cylinder, six cylinders, so minimum you'll need 12, buy more. Doesn't hurt to have spares.
