  Sheldon Brown's Bicycle Glossary An-Az
Internal gear hubs use the axle as a fulcrum for the gearing.
There is some controversy as to whether "axle" or "spindle" should be used in particular contexts.
The distinction is based on whether the axle/spindle is stationary, as that in a hub, or rotates, as that in a bottom bracket.

  Axle Assembly - Partstrain.com
A combination of an axle shaft, one or two constant velocity joints or maybe a U-joint, the axle assembly is designed to pass on rotational force coming from the transmission to the wheels of the vehicle.
Axles are significant structural components of a wheeled vehicle.
Axles also carry the acceleration forces between the ground and the vehicle.

  Project Tacoma: Ultimate Toyota Axle, Part 2 - Toyota at Off-Road.com   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Each axle is rotated by hand, moving up and down the length of the shaft to measure the run-out and make any necessary adjustments.
Different dies are used according to the pressure angle of the splines and diametric pitch (the number of splines relative to the axle diameter).
Axle dimensions are then checked against the build-sheet again to ensure all the parts are 100% accurate.

The length of the Torflex torsion arm as measured from the axis of the axle tube to the axis of the spindle.
Axles are typically built with a pre-determined bend in the tube that compensates for the expected deflection under load.
The distance from the hub face or load line to the spring center (for Leaf Spring axles) or bracket edge (for Torflex axles.) That distance is used to calculate the beam strength of the axle.

  Axle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In some cases the axle may be fixed in position with a bearing or bushing sitting inside the hole in the wheel or gear to allow the wheel or gear to rotate around the axle.
Straight axles are used on trains, for the rear axles of commercial trucks, and on heavy duty off-road vehicles.
The drive axle is a split axle with a differential and universal joints between the two half axles.

 Live axle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A live axle is a type of beam axle suspension system that uses the driveshafts that transmit power to the wheels to connect the wheels laterally so that they move together as a unit.
A live axle consists of a central differential mated to tubes containing the driveshafts that connect the differential to the driven wheels.
Because the axle assembly is a fairly simple and rigid arrangement, it can easily be made stronger and more robust, which is an advantage for vehicles with substantial power or that are intended for rugged and/or off-road usage.

 Ford 8.8 Axle Swap
The axle came with a limited slip locker and 3.73 gears in it.
I was fortunate to be putting this axle in a jeep with a long arm lift, which means I had some flexibility in terms of where my axle brackets went.
Getting the Ford 8.8 axle centered under the car took a few tries and then re adjustments had to be made on the lower and upper control arms.

 Axle Caps
Wreckmaster and ArvinMeritor instructors are now using our axle covers during their training classes as the best way to cover hubs during towing.
Our tough, High Density Polyethylene axle covers do not need a gasket or sealant and are equipped with an access hole for adding hub oil before towing, so the hub bearings will always have an oil supply during the tow.
For years, the standard procedure for towing has been to place a piece of cardboard over the hub studs to help retain the oil, but this method is less than effective.

 Axle on sealed hub
You may need to tap on one end of the axle with a hammer to get it to pop, but the axle is machined with races for the bearings to sit directly on.
When you tap on the axle (after all nuts are removed from the outside) the race that the bearing sits on will push that bearing right out of the hub with no problem.
If you are worried about your axle, then put a wooden board between the hammer and the axle to protect the surface of the axle from impact.

 Toyota Rear-Axle Upgrade - Four Wheeler Magazine
The axle shafts were lengthened 1.5 inches per side, but the third members are completely interchangeable between the early and later years, through 1995 when Toyota changed the axle for the Tacoma.
Many rockcrawlers with early-model narrow-track axles have opted to swap in the later wide-track axles to widen tire stance and prevent the inside face of the rear tires from rubbing on the frame rails under extreme articulation.
Swapping to the newer axle is a bolt-on affair.

It attaches directly to the trailer frame using brackets which are an integral part of the axle assembly.
The Torflex axle provides improved suspension characteristics relative to leaf spring axles through the unique arrangement of a steel torsion bar surrounded by four natural rubber cords encased in the main structural member of the axle beam.
Except for periodic inspection of the fasteners used to attach the Torflex axle to the vehicle frame, no other suspension maintenance is required on Torflex axles.

 Axle Removal
The axle nuts are torqued to approximately 180 lb-ft. It is tempting to use ½" drive tools, and they might work, but, during my axle replacement, I split a ½" drive socket and others have broken ½" drive breaker bars.
On the early models, (’90 to 3/95) unbolt the four bolts holding the axle to the stub shafts on the differential.
Next, set the parking brakes and tighten the axle nuts until the hub begins to rotate –; you want to get the nut tight but the torque value is so high you must finish the job after the car is on the ground.

 Solid-Axle Suspension - History & Technical Specs - Rod and Custom Magazine
Notice the stock axle, buggy spring, and wishbone-style radius rod with a ball at the rear that pivots in a cup attached to the transmission mount.
This worked great with the dropped I-beam axles that were available at the time, because the radius rods allowed the axle to move up and down and the flexibility of the I-beam allowed the axle to twist slightly when necessary to accommodate strange torsion loads going up driveways or over speed bumps.
With a dropped axle, split wishbones, and a stock or F-100 steering box in place, the rod that runs from the pitman arm to the spindle (called a drag link) was forced to operate at an unusual angle due to the geometry change.
