    Common practice has for many years been to use the larger inner diameter Ford bearings on the larger diameter axles. I can recall when using Ford bearings for their extra load carrying was a relatively new idea.

    It has probably just become standard practice because there isn't a lot of value in having a 1.5t axle with 750kg bearings.

    Mind you, when you see the bending in a small axle that is loaded up, the 45mm axle will be good news for your tyres!
    Cheers
