Reuse Front Axle Housing?
After stripping down my FJ40 front axle for a rebuild, I can tell it's taken a pretty good beating over the years. Some of it's just cosmetic, but the groove in the knuckle ball has me concerned. Would you reuse it or find another housing?

2. Hogged out leaf spring pin hole on the spring perch
3. Rock rash on the front diff
