Question Good Axle/ Bad Axle

Have been looking at a used A/S and would like opinions on axles. Viewing from under the TT they appear to have somewhat of a negative angle (5 degrees?)
Negative is good, right. I've attached a pic of the axles at eye level.
Thanks,
Dave

If the ends point down toward the ground, the axles are still good. Just by looking at the photo above, it looks like the axles are still okay, but are getting low, and so will need replacement in the not too distant future.

IIRC you can have a slight negative angle and be okay, just watch how much weight you put in the unit or you may use up your reserve. I would defintely put new axles in the budget.
