Default Futaba BB upgrade Kit for S148 Servos?

Someone at the field was telling me that I can uprade the Futaba S148 servos with the Ball Bearing upgrade kit used to make 3003 servos into 3004 servos. I thought the S148 servos were a slightly higher prised basic servo and already had the bearing in the top case. Will this upgrade make the 148 better or do they already have the bearing.

The Futaba S148 servos are bushed type servos, and can benefit from a ball bearing upgrade. L&M Industries of Tampa, Florida, makes a Ball Bearing Servo Conversion Kit to convert any standard Futaba servo to a ball bearing servo.

If the Futaba 3003-3004 upgrade kit works that's probably the best deal for me becasue I can get it from Tower. Is there anything that would not allow that kit to work.
