post up what the costs are with this treatment.

I had to have a spindle replaced on my car hauler, it uses Dexter torsien axles, 6K. Was around 250, for the weld on spindle. They said it was around 500 to replace the entire axle. That is less that what many people have posted for axle work on their TT.

A rainy day camping is better than a sunny day at work.

Here is the good and the bad....Truck shop attempted to bend the axle but were not able to correct it enough to take out all the negative camber. So....New Axle is en-route and apparently its a pretty simple job. Shipping cost more than the axle itself bringing the total bill for a new axle, re pack wheel bearings, and mount and install 4 tires to just under $900.00.
Again a very expensive month to say the least.

Bummer! But you knew it was bad, and now you're good to go.

I would say you got off pretty cheap if, and it sounds so, you are also getting 4 new tires.
