Unhappy Spindle Replacement ?

I have a badly grooved spindle on one axle on my 1999 Safari 25’.

Can the spindle be replaced or do I need a complete axle?

Spindles cannot be replaced.

To do so will destroy the rubber rods, from the cutting and welding heat, rendering the axle useless on one side.

Additionally, it would be near impossible to properly align a new spindle.

Henschen will not replace "any" spindle.
