Default Spindle question

I bought a set of 28-48 spindles from SAE-Speed (https://www.sae-speed.com/products/1...6dba63d3&_ss=r). I couldnt find anywhere from them what size bearings to get for the typical GM import 80's front hub. They arent open until Monday and not sure how well versed they are as far as technical support. They measure 1.189" close to the kingpin and 0.765" by the castle nut. Any ideas?

The inner bearing is what you said and the outer may also be but, call them and they will guide you in the right direction.

The 78-88 Malibu/El Camino/etc. mid-sized cars seem to be what a lot of guys use.

I got ahold of the company today. They are sending the missing "sleeves" for the standard 78-88 GM mid-sized bearings. If something doesnt pan out with them, I'll definitely look into Speedway. I've bought a bunch from them on this build too. Thanks!
