YOu will have to get exactly the same size because the VZ modules are held in place by the capacitor terminals, and the capacitors are clamped at the bottom by a pair of plastic clamps around their base. If they're too thin or thick the clamps wont fit and if they're to short they wont reach the clamp, which is mounted from the side. Without the clamps the main DC busbars are free to touch the metal lid etc which will not end well. There's only about 4mm clearance with the correct capacitors.

It doesn't look like there's any solution for a direct fit. 

I will Macgyver / maybe 3D print something to keep everything in place with whatever replacements I find.

the DC bus bar is also held in place by the output module anyway so it's not really that free to move

oh it's free to move perfectly adequately if the clamps aren't tight.

Sorry, I should have mentioned earlier that I may have a pair of used ones in stock, I’ll check tomorrow if I remember.

Got a reply from Harman, unlike the Canadian distributor who I guess doesn't care to help out, they still have some for $70.98USD ea+shipping ... Let me know if you do and want to sell one and ship to Canada.

Did you get your caps sorted out?  I have a a set from an Amcron 5000 I am parting out.  Need any other parts by chance?
