uneven tire wear, axle check/repair (Colorado)?

Doing my own research, but any words of wisdom welcome:

Uneven tire wear discovered when replacing tires on right side, on inside of tire one axle, outside of tire other axle. Did hit a curb once (<10 mph) on left side of trailer (one flat). No vibration noticed.

Thoughts (have photos)? Any Denver (or Front Range, Colorado) shop recommendations for axle check/repair/replace? I'm aware of Foxridge, Ironbear, a few others (not a fan of Windish).

2011 23FB International, probably considered low miles. Danka.

I would contact Luke in Fort Collins. He replaced axles for me a few years back.

I thought I had bent an axle, turned out to be worn rubber (spring) bushing inside the axle. Inside tire edge.

Nine years is a bit soon, but wouldn't be unheard of on rough roads and heavy loading.
I doubt a 10mph hit on the opposite side would cause that tire ware. Inside ware toe-out. Outside, toe-in.


Went to Jackson Center for the axle install.
