It seems typical to plug each stub shaft right into the side of the diff and engage the side gears. With an open diff When the wheels go different speeds rounding a turn or playing in the snow the stub shafts run at speeds +/- the ring gear/diff carrier speed. The bearing that supports and centers the highly finished steel stub shaftjournal is just a nicely fitted hole in the iron/steel diff carrier.
Is this how everybody does it? Or are some diffs bushed?
