Answer: 
They should be in the package, but I wouldn't be surprised if they were not since there is serious quality issues, return it and get one with the hardware in the package. It is way too expensive to not come with required pieces.

I disassembled my shower valve and took it to the store with me. Size #11 o-rings fit perfect and do the trick and they are only $0.59 a piece

Answer: 
They are expensive, if you have time try replacing it and see what happens, and replace the other if still leaks, these are very low quality, so good luck.

I apologize you were unable to find the information you were looking for. The model number of your valve unfortunately is not printed anywhere on the valve or cartridge. If you do not have any of your original paperwork, I would recommend removing your handle and trim and contact our Customer Care

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great replacement product This cartridge was amazingly easy to install. It worked great right off the bat, My leak was repaired I would recommend this product to anyone. September 2, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OEM part This part was the genuine OEM article, made in USA so quite pleased with purchase. All spare O-rings etc included. February 17, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kohler Shower Valve Cartridge This was a perfect replacement for our Kohler shower valve. in the end, we needed to replace the shower valve mixing cap to get our hot water flowing again, but we decided to keep this piece in to compliment the mixing cap. February 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect match It was a perfect match for the old Kohler shower mixing valve from 2004. This one is held together with rivets and not a SS nut and bolt. My old one failed from the rubber diaphragm 'dissolving" inside where the mixing piston resides and no longer was able to switch from hot to cold water temperature. Just make sure you change seals and "O"-rings provided. July 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product Availability All I can say is this saved me a lot of time and money because it was available at my local Home Depot. This is a Kohler product so you expect to have to go to a high end plumbing store or order it online. At 9:45PM I walked into Home Depot and they had it in stock! Awesome! within minutes I was home and showering again. Thank You Home Depot. May 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Product worked as expected. The PBU worked perfectly and was easy to install. It would be nice if cartridge had more easily identifiable product numbers and indicated hot and cold ports. January 14, 2014
