Dodge Repair/trans cooler lines


QUESTION: I have a (3rd. gen 2004 Ram 2500, 5.7 auto trans) and the "trans cooler lines" need to be replaced.  when I look up part#'s,  each year ( 2003, 04, 05, ect...) of the 3rd gen has a different end letter, ex: Part #52028924 AH, AG,  AF, but when you look at the picture of the line, they're the same.  My question is, are they the same part, in other words are they interchangeable, is this a case where Dodge just puts a different letter at the end of the part# to signify the year, are all third generation rams the same transmission cooler line as long as everything is the same?
Thanks a bunch,

ANSWER: Hi Mike,
That is the sort of question that a Dodge dealer parts counter-man can better answer than I as he can look at the parts themselves and also might know specifically what that changing suffix means. My opinion would probably not be reliable compared to the dealer. If you don't have a dealer nearby let me know and I will check that out here.
Please see the PS below and respond.

QUESTION: Roland, I've never met a part counter-man that would do an ounce more work than they have to, they are all usually just short of rude and don't want to work with ya if you don't know exactly what you need.  This is why I came to you and the forums online for help.  I don't think you are going to want me to answer survey.

I went ahead and called a local dealer and spoke with a counter-man name of "Mike". also.
He gave me the same part number as you with the suffix AF. I asked about what AG, AH might means and he thought it could be the specific supplier of the part. I didn't ask him to look at other model years but it would seem that if you can get 52028924 AF that it would be correct. The other line is 52028925. He didn't make much of the suffix differences.
I hope that you would do a rating of me and click the 'yes' box where you see the question about a nomination of me to be volunteer of the month. Thanks
