updated part number for cam sensor??

I just bought a new cam position sensor for my 96. i found a part number on here of f6tz-12k073-a and a updated part number that is susposed to fit all years f7tz-12k073-b. my part number i got today was f4tz-12k073-c. since it is a letter c at the end looks like it has been updated again??
I also read somewhere that the price of the part was going to go back up again. i got 2 and only paid 23.69 a piece.
any word of this new part number?

I've got an 01 and just ordered 2 today from directfordparts.com since the one on my truck is started to act up (again). $14.64/ea and they sent me f7tz-12k073-b. They just arrived today.

Best thing to do is keep one in the glove box just in case it goes.

with the new updated cam sensor is it still a good idea to carry a spare in the truck?
