A Full floating axle is one that does not support any weight from the truck by the axle shafts. Extra bearings and such keep the weight off the axle shaft. These are much stronger than their opposite, semi-float. Semi floaters have a portion of the vehicles weight on the axle shafts as well as the axle tubes/housing.
