I can see what you are talking about.
The bearings atached to the rear axle have "GRUB SCREWED" to the rear
axle. This is where a small bolt in the bearing is tightened onto the
rear axle. This stops the rear axle from moving from side to side
inside the bearing.

Another method, is to manufacture a "stepped" rear axle on a lathe.
This way, a shoulder can be put into the axle, whereby the bearing
keeps up flat against. The bearing on the right stops the axle from
sliding right, where the bearing and its shoulder on the left stops it
from sliding left.
Best of Luck
