When we replaced the shocks and wheel bearings I was concerned that I should have done the axles then and I had a couple of issues with the brakes not releasing after it was all put back together. The brakes didn't work well back then either.

Now the big question is going to be whether or not Andy can get all the parts in time to install them before Thanksgiving week, we have a trip planned for that week.

Plan B is to replace the brake controller, put the brake back together and hope for the best.

Torsion axles usually don't last 40 years.
