Drive Axle on '09 CC Magna

Just found the tag for my drive axle. Someone had removed it from the axle and put it in the owners box. No idea why they would do that.

CC rated it at 20,000#'s.

The tag shows it to be a 25,000# axle (S25-170F0) with a 4.30 ratio.

Airing up the drive tires (315/80's) to full would allow over 30,000#'s on just the drive.

Guessing I won't overload the tires or rear axle.

Original owner had a trucking company with his own shop. I suppose they would have done it for some reason.
I'd rather they had left it riveted to the axle! I looked for it on the axle when I was lubing the U-joints and found the remains of the tag. There is no way it could have been hit and come off.

I wonder what my axles are rated for then.
