This is an example of a GM Corporate 14-Bolt full-floating rear axle. You can see how the threaded spindle is welded to the axle tube and made to accept the wheel hub along with tapered roller bearings. The floating axle shaft is visible protruding from the spindle. Aftermarket disc brake caliper mounts have been welded to this housing.
