Hi Michael,
Not sure if this will help but...
We used to have shoes relined in years gone by and always specified 0.187"
thickness for the lining material.
That measurement originated from a set of NOS rears that we had come
We successfully installed many many sets, both front and rear and sold lots
To the best of my knowledge we never had any complaints about shoes relined
to that thickness.
