Ordering on line is a really bad idea unless you know positively exactly what you need. The way to find this out is to remove the existing parts and measure them (assuming they fit properly). After all, those original parts will have to come off to install the replacements anyway. I would trust what I have in my hand, measured by me 10X more than any helpful comments from the internet.
One reason internet sellers can undercut your local shop is that they do not provide any assistance. Take your bike to a good LBS, and he will be able to get you exactly what you need, at 50% to 100% higher cost. Knowledge can really save you $$.
