I don't think there's been a problem with the spindle, no mechanic has ever mention it, so I don't think that's been checked. I don't think they would have thought to check if there wasn't some visible damage would they?
(I haven't taken it to a dealership, too expensive, I've been using smaller neighborhood garages 2 to 6 bays, in business for 10 to 20 years, kind of places)
I've only replaced the right front once at about 117K. The left has been replaced at 94K, 120K, 132K, 142K, 154K and now again at 179K miles.
No flaking or pitting or blueing. I'll mention checking the race diameter to my mechanic (tactfully).
Thanks for the quick response.
