Is it the right TRE? Do you have a pair of micrometers you can measure it with? Maybe the wrong part put in the packaging? The sleeve won't fit the moog without reaming, it shouldn't even slide over it.

but it does fit Ac Delco perfectly, maybe the aftermarket is smaller. I did have that problem with the bushings in Mevotech being a thousands of an inch off?

I wonder what year you're getting parts for. I recall there being a diameter change similar to our 14/16 mm thread change. I bet you have old 14mm thread tres and you probably need 16mm tres.

Sorry, so what was your resolution? You got the 16mm HD tres and it worked fine with your rack and the sleeve?

So it was the wrong sleeve? I hope we didn't posted the wrong part number.

I'm sorry for the confusion. That 1144 sounds familiar. I'll have to check mine.

It does seem odd that 2500 would be skinnier than 1500. Maybe someone needs to look into the 1500 TREs!

Hmm I just looked it up and you're correct but that was written with my receipt in my hand with the part number. I could have made a mistake but but thats a weird mistake.
