Replacing shift rod end bearings?

I have aftermarket rear sets that are Sato knock offs, probably thai. Recently, my shift lever will stick in the up or down position and it looks like I need to replace the ends. I've been told mcmaster is a good vendor, but am unsure which ones I need. Can anyone tell me the part numbers?

Take a close up pic of the bearing. Being that small probably a 3 digit number and looks similar to the attached.

McMaster is okay but you want to make sure you get a good bearing (NSK, NTN, Nachi), which is probably why your first set failed. Be sure to buy a sealed bearing too. try here if you need to measure a replacement bearing.

Good Luck
