Cassettes often look like that when apart, 2-3 alloy spiders, spacers and loose cogs, when the lock ring is torqued up to 40nm as recommended, the cassette holds shape and doesn't move, you will often see wheel sets with Alloy freehub bodies to save weight advise only running alloy spider cassettes to save the steel ones chewing into the splines,
Some of the cheaper cassettes are the majority in a block with the last 2 loose, they are often held together with 3 pins, but as the cassette body is splined in a specific way, the pins are not needed other than for ease of removing the unit,
