Not from what I have studied.
The original EX rear axle for my car was so rusted and pitted it was not worth using any part of it except the gears. But the bearing at each end of the axles would be very hard to grease. I can see the need for a modification.
I used sealed bearings with the type that has 50% thrust. There back to back at each end of the tube and preloaded when the wheel is installed. That way when you go around a corner the axle gear is not pressing against the ring gear.
Good luck with the car Iím glad to hear itís running well, itís a beautiful car.
