The SAE is 2-1/8", which is a snug 54mm. This works fine but some claim they are not deep enough, never seemed true for me on my IFS truck, though.

Marlin sells a very nice socket, heavy wall and sized right (doesn't slip), which is what I mostly use. He's also out of stock and still not cheap ($25).
