If you're planning a long road trip, then you won't get very far if your car's rear axle falls out. A rear axle is a long metal pole which extends from one side of a car to the other. It is to a rear axle that a car's rear wheels attach. A rear axle's ability to revolve is what allows a car to roll forward or backward when the car's operator puts the car into gear.
