You need to get a push rod length checking tool to ensure you get the correct length. There can be differences if the block was ever surfaced or decked so you cannot depend on what someone else might have used.
Chromoly, & Hardened, guide plates if you can use them.

I like the one piece myself and whatever diameter will work best with your guide plates.
Stock diameter should work fine, the aftermarkets are likely much stronger than the stock pushrods anyways.
