I replaced mine about 5 years ago. I sort of recall that there were differences and that it's best to take some measurements with a caliper at the upper and lower shaft as well as upper and lower post. Luckily, Buzz is down the coast so I instead decided to bring my rudder and old bearings down. You should check the search function here. There was much written about it when I last looked.
