Default strange live axle housing vs standard axle housing

Anyone know the difference between the two housings?not the new black housing but the older one piece aluminum housings. I have the standard axle version currently but it has dual patterns on the ends. A 6 bolt and the regular 4 bolt for caliper mount/ axle retension. I assumed the 6 bolt version was to bolt in the floater/live axle kit into it. Called strange to ask and said theres nothing available and would have to buy complete housing. They couldnt tell me what or why i got the 6 bolt pattern either.

About $3-5000, depending on brakes............................

I HAD to say that

The six bolt brake caliper mount came on the floater kits.

It was probably packed incorrectly, can they exchange the caliper brackets for you?

The newer housing looks like a copy of the Mark Williams Modular housing to me.

I think the newer design is BETTER, in my opinion.

The live axle housing is built for a LARGER diameter axle shaft.
