You need self aligning rockers unless someone replaced your factory guide plates with real guide plates. So you are looking for 1987 and up design.

The difference in the rockers related to the valve covers. The center bolt valve cover require a narrower rocker arm than the earlier perimeter style, because the bolts are between the rockers. The perimeter valve cover allow more room for the rockers since bolts are on the edges. Non self aligning rockers require hardened guide plates and push rods.

That should be fine, just confirm that they are the narrow body design. They should be since they are self aligning but it does not hurt to check.

You may have to drill out the inside of the valve covers to make them fit perfectly without tapping against it.
