Hi Ben,

All a rear axle is, is a steel bar 1.5 meters long.
You get a solid steel bar, 1.5 meters long, diameter 25 millimeters
(or what ever inside hole of the wheels are).
Weld/ bolt the wheels at either end of the axle.

Place pieces of pipe onto teh axle (before welding on the wheels).
Bold/ weld the pipe to the chassis.
This will allow the axle to spin inside the pipe.
It should work ok.
You need to go through the website for better details.
Best of Luck
