The mechanic says the front right half-shaft inner joint is loose on the stub shaft. And that the stub shaft is only available as part of the whole axle assembly. Is that true? Or can you install that without a whole new axle? $5,000.00.
Do you
have the same problem?

That sounds expensive, here are the instructions on how to do the job and the labor times so you can see the cost per the shop rate:

Axle Assembly, R&R One Side 1.2 at shop rate.
Both Sides 2.0 at shop rate.

Here are both axles for $170.00 brand new from amazon:
