Question Torsion Axles Have Cracks and are worn out.

I have a 2008 SV-210 and both axles have cracks. We do not load up the trailer but put heavier items in our truck.
We have driven about 15k miles. Has anyone had a similar problem.

Where are the cracks located? I've never heard of this before.

Cracks On axle

The cracks are on the part that attaches to the trailer frame. The torsion axles are welded to these mounts. The Crack appears to have radiate from the weld.

Torsion axle cracks.

Attached is a marked up picture off a similar axle. the white line is approximately where the cracks are on both axles. The axles are over flexing towards the inside of the wheel well.
