You may be able to find a number stamped on the back of the alternator. Usually the higher output models were used if you have heated seats or other high amp accessories.
It may not make a big difference which one you buy if both parts bolt on the same way.

Alternater Bearing

Sorry but you'll have to buy a rebuilt from auto supplier, unless you wnat to go through the hassle of trying to get a bearing, by removing old one and getting bearing supplier to try & track one down for you. Possibly a place that rebuild them will sell you one, but I doubt it, (cutting his own throat) .
besides, you go through the hassle of replacing it, and then shortly after, something else gives up too, then you've basically wasted your time.
