Pilot bushing/bearing in '91Z, roller or bronze/brass?

Is the factory pilot bushing or bearing roller or the traditional brass/bronze style in a '91 Z28 with a WC T5? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Moroso and GM both make replacement roller pilot bearings.Better than old style bushing,
makes for smoother release.I've used em since replacing my clutch the first time.I hear even Clutch-Mart uses them now at no extra cost!Don't have PN's handy,but you should be able to get one just about anywhere.

Thanks for the reply. I asked the shop to put one in when I had it done and they said I need the brass style, freakin idiots. I saw a Valeo clutch set on Ebay that included a roller pilot bearing with the kit. That's what made me question it. Thanks guys.
