I've read on here and wrote it down some time ago. Factory 2.061 to 2.063 max. additional wear allowed is minus 5 mils. I don't really get the mils part. I believe it means .005?
Not sure on the wear spec.completely.
I've measured on my car years ago with replaceable sleeves installed before I owned the car. Areas where the bearing didn't ride measured in the spec. I wrote above.
