I recently had this issue. I needed a push cable and figured I would replace both. I bought a push and pull from Motion pro, but from two different websites, limitations in stock.
After some careful examination,. they sent me the wrong push cable, and I checked the motion pro website. They use the same cable for both on our bikes. This is because they have a pretty wide adjustment range on their cables.
So, long story short, I tried using the motion pro cable as my pull (go), and my stock pull as my push (don't go). Didn't work, stock pull was too short to be a push cable. When I reversed them and kept my stock pull as a pull cable and used the Motion Pro "pull" cable as a push, it all fit perfectly (I just had to remove the bracket that holds the two cable together from the Motion Pro cable.
So in summation, the stock cables are different lengths, slightly. It is hardly noticeable. But the Motion Pro cables for push and pull are the same length and are completely interchangeable. I recommend purchasing from jakewilson.com.
I would stay away from Cheap Cycle Parts for this order as they are the ones that sent me the wrong cable, and it took twice as long to get it as the one from Jake Wilson.
Hope this helps.
