How can I recognize RCV shafts in the rear ?

This might be a stupid question, but how can I recognize RCV shafts on the rear axle ?
I got a JK offered, which should have RCV´s in front and rear. The front ones have the orange covers, so this ones are there.
But how can I recognize, whether the rear axle also has RCV shafts, without dismounting anything .

Thanks in advance for your answer,

M.

You have to remove the tire and drum. I don't see any other way ?

May be able to pop a center cap off a wheel and see if there is a sticker in the hub of the rear axle..if RCV does that..

The part number is on the flange. You will have to remove the caliper and rotor to see it. Might be easier to see if the owner has a receipt for them.

Thanks for the answers. It seems, I have to see the receipt and trust.

I have RCV rears and unfortunately there were no visible markings on mine (or that I noticed).

BUT..... the wheel studs were bolts that threaded through the mating surface so look there. If they are pressed in then probably not RCV

Hope that helps

A number of aftermarket chromo axle shafts use screw in lugs
