As far as synchros go, get in contact with the guys at andrewtech. They are pretty much the go to people for transmissions for these cars in the country. Not saying they are the only ones who know, or do them, but they are one of the most knowledgeable group of guys out there that are readily available to the public.
In my opinion, depending on what you are going to do with the car, I'd suggest going with a set of 08+ gears. They make kits to allow them to be used in earlier transmissions. I believe they are around $1500 for everything you need. That's the route I am going...

Yeah, they are the same and Matt (basco) has said the bearings can only be had from the dealership. I'd get the kits that fit older transmissions to make sure you don't get stuck in any fubar moments that the kits fixed. Keith, do you have a link or more information on those kits?
Yes, I used some old military jargon
