Its used in conjunction with the other spacer you showed in your 1st post. You might get an idea what I'm talking about by checking my pic. The spacer goes into the smallest diameter bore where the bearing seats.
However in all honesty I don't think its wide enough in your case as its only about .050" thick. Two might just clear, but the GM directions call for .100"(+/- .040). FWIW
I see what you mean, thanks. I will take a look at that too.

Thanks for the help guys, chime in if anyone else has suggestions.
