It is the same part, but it wears quite a bit and always should be replaced. Often times it can crack into two halfs and cause weird shifting. I would take a 2nd look in there. Its also very cheap part price wise - so there is no reason to skimp. Buy a new bearing and see how the shifter feels. Use M2o2 (cv joint) grease in the bearing and the ball of the shift lever.
