Found these on eBay. They're called safety hubs. Basically, they are heavy duty axle retainers. NOS from 1956 for 55/56 Chevy and 56 Corvette. Scored for under $10! Since I will be abusing the stock rear in my beater, these were a no brainer. Anyone who's had one of these rears apart knows that the axles are held in with a thin stamped plate. These do not replace the stock ones, they "girdle" them. Thought I should post this so people could check out some kool old speed parts. Here's pix of the install....
