Default 231 rebuild

So there are many 231 rebuild kits out there for lots of different prices
I have a 1988 case and I know they changed the pitch of the planetaries in 94
My question is did they change any thing else?
I don't want to buy a rebuild kit and it not have the right parts
And also is there a vendor in michigan that wants to sell me a quality kit?
I would like to keep my money in state if possible
(I will also looking at buying the 2low kit and 6 pinion planetary)
Thanks in advance

I've only ever come across a "one kit rebuilds all 231j" style kits, but thoes were just bearings and seals etc no gears or planetaries. If that the case get the Timken one.

The rebuild kit would just be bearings and seals
The other parts are separates stuff
And I've seen different kits with different year ranges and I wanted to double check before I bought the wrong stuff
