There is a dust seal in the end of the axle tube (that's all), there are needle bearings in the wheel bearing hub that you can see but there are bigger roller bearings that you will never see. The axle is only supported by the hub and the spider side gear in the diff. See my post; "Grease your wheel bearings, pic here."
