I'm sorry, but your question was cut off. Can you please try again? Thanks!

I'd like to install 82-400 Brass Atrium Door Lever Lockset in a door that is 1 3/4" thick and has a stile width of 2". Will the lock case fit in a door stile that is this narrow?

Hey, thanks for clarifying. The 82-400 has a back set of 1-3/4", which I believe would need a style of at least 3", if not more; maybe even 3-1/2". Take a look at our 40-195 and 40-196 lock sets instead. They only have a 1" back set, which should work with a 2" stile. My only concern is that they are used on 1" thick doors. It appears that you might need to a longer spindle and longer screws. The problem is, we only sell these locks sets for replacement purposes. You might want to speak to a carpenter or door manufacture on what type of lock set to use.
