Rear stub axle sizes
#1
Living in NZ, but my 306 is in storage in Australia for when I do some extensive touring there in the winter.
Looking on Ebay there are two sizes of rear stub axle, 102mm and 105mm, but reading a post by Mighty306 and there may be four different types of stub axles.
I'm assuming the quoted measurement is similar to a bolt length, taken from under the head to the tip of the thead end.
My 1999 306 sedan is non ABS, drum brake sedan.
I think this model the bearing comes off with the drum.
Does anyone know
1. The stub axle length for this model
2. Are they prone to bending, I've only seen one report of this.
3. I have made a puller in advance, but what size is the centre nut
4. The stub axle diameters would be worth knowing to be complete

I picked up somewhere the front axle nut is 32mm/1.25" so have that socket packed already in case of cv boot repair job. I hope a 1/2" drive is up to the task.

Thanks for any help

Front hub nuts are 35mm but can get away with 36mm socket. Rears are 32mm. Aftermarket nuts can be different sizes if someone's made previous repairs though.

Stub axles only bend if you whack them against a kerb, it should be fine otherwise.

I don't know the length for your model.

Thanks, looks like I'm prepared for rear drum removal.
Detecting a bend or measuring the stub axle length without removing it first might turn out to be tricky or unreliable.
