Axle Code

I'm in the process of replacing swivel balls on my '89 Ninety p/u...I'm told that there are different swivel balls for different axles. Of course my axle is corroded enough that I cannot see an axle code. Does anyone know another way to determine the axle code or is there another way to determine which swivel ball I need?

AFAIK, it is all about the bearings and there are two versions.

The early ones have a swivel pin on top and bearing on bottom. Allbrit.de - Ersatzteile für LAND ROVER & MG ROVER

Later has a bearing on top and bottom. Allbrit.de - Ersatzteile für LAND ROVER & MG ROVER
