Best Tub/shower ceramic stem retrofit
Like most all ceramic faucets, once installed, they seem to never leak. The authentic Price Pfister ceramic valve retrofits are significantly superior to the knock-offs. Some knock-off look alikes have leaked around the stem if everything is not just "right." The plastic shaft of a competitor's product busted perhaps when tenant used too much force when turning off the water. When installing, pipe dope, in addition to teflon tape, should be used on the threads to preclude a leak from shower back pressure. When installing, be prepared to replace the seat of the valve with an authentic Price-Pfister seat; if the existing seat is too high, the valve will be hard to turn ON and OFF. Alternatively, shim the valve by adding a thin 7/8th inch fiber spacer washer.

Perfect
Little different from original (which is probably 12 years old), but worked perfectly versus the aftermarket junk I picked up at the local plumbing store that was missing components.

Best Tub/shower ceramic stem retrofit
I've retrofitted 14 old-style washer valves with pf ceramic valves. I ended up scrapping slightly less expensive "knock off" valves from two other manufacturers. One mfg's products leaked around the stem. The plastic shell on another mfg's product was too difficult to tighten down because it lacked the ridges on the pf product. See photo. It is essential that #5 pipe dope be used on the threads if leaks are to be avoided as the threads on the ceramic valves are cut uniformly, like a machine screws, rather than being tappered like a typical pipe thread. Replacement valve must be screwed in tight if it is not to leak into the wall when the water is sent up to the shower head. The retrofits are installed without removing the seat for the old style washer valve. It is best to have on hand 7/8" ID fiber washers to use as shims, or an assortment of seats, to get the right fit when the valve is fastened tightly in place. If the valve seat is higher than pf's spec, it will be hard to turn the valve unless ceramic valve is shimmed by the corresponding amount. If the valve seat is low than pf's spec, perhaps because polishing was done to remove a rought spot, there may be inadequate pressure to keep the two ceramic discs firmly placed against one another; the result is slow drip. In about half of the installations, the valve had to be shimmed or cranked in real hard to get the proper fit, but once installed .. NO LEAKS. At this point in time, I have several valves that have been in service for nearly a year without problems.

Gebuine part and good service
I was glad to see that I received a genuine Pfister item. Some sellers advertise that you are getting a real factory replacement, then send you a cheap knock off.
