I though I had a bearing issue, took the bearings out (2010) and the part number says 088 089 (not sure if that should be 088/089). I had 16 of them in my factory engine.

The replacement VAC bearings I have are 702 703 (702/703).

Now on the first page is says there should be different bearings for top and bottom, is that correct?

The color is the only real way to distinguish as the shell has both markings on them.
The 088/89 are the lead faced bearing the was discontinued. You have the correct newer bearings.
