This is an example of a semi-floating rear axle being pulled from a flanged outer axlehousing. In this case, the brake backing plate and components have been removed. But pulling an axle of this type means pulling the brake parts as well. The shaft and flange that holds the wheel studs are all one piece. This is also a pressed bearing design axle and uses a four-bolt flange.
