I finished dismantling the front suspension and cross member, to replace all bushes and send parts for powder coating.
It seems to that the mating surface on the stub axle for the inner bearing is worn. There is no noticeable play when I fit the bearing, but I can clearly feel a dip when running my nail on the axle. This seemingly worn surface is found only on half the circumference of the axle.
My mate tells me to not worry and just reuse as is. What do experts say?
