The bearing retainers, as in the bearing housings themselves?

Generally the parts should look the same and be the same size, unless the manufacturer has updated the part design due to a fault with the old one.

Your best bet is to call your local dealer and ask for the parts department, and ask them if the retainer has been updated to a new design. If not, I would get the part directly from them instead of an aftermarket one, if you haven't already done so.
