replacement nut

i have seen a replacement nut for a floyd on allparts, i wonder if you could tell me if one of these would be suitable to replace the nut on my rg550. there are two different ones:

Ebanol Nut With Metal Base for Replacing Floyd Rose® Nut 1-11/16" Black
or
Ebanol Nut With Metal Base for Replacing Floyd Rose® Nut 1-5/8" Black
thankyou!

also would this bridge be suitable to replace my lo-pro once the cavities are filled in of course.
Non-Tremolo Bridge for Strat® Chrome With Screws 2-3/16" Spacing, Bridge Plate 2 - 7/8" x 1 - 1/2"

1 11/16" is 43mm [as close as you get], you also want one with a radius as close to 430mm [or 16-17"] as you can get. Center to center on a Lo Pro saddles is 54mm [2 1/8"] which would be preferred, you might notice the extra width if your E strings are falling too close to the edge of the frets in the last few

thanx rich, is there any bridge in particular that would be perfect for me, or will one off allparts do the trick, would you be able to look for me on allparts seen as though you are clued into these things, only if you can though. thanx
also im not sure if the nuts had the radius on them i'll take another look.

i found a bridge, with 2-1/8 string spacing, its top loading, will this be pretty stable, or is it best to go for something with the through body stringing style?
