Rhino 450 Front Spindles

I'm faced with the need to replace the front spindles (steering knuckles) on my 2006 Rhino 450 for the third time now. Are the stock Yamaha spindles a problem for anyone else? The bearings and inner part of the hubs just grind themselves to a mess and can't be fixed.

Is there a better solution? Where can I find spindles, reasonably priced, that will last? Right now, I need the passenger front spindle and hub with the dust shield and brake disc to rebuild and get running again.

Thanks for your help and suggestions!

Is anyone out there reading these posts and questions? I was hoping to hear from someone by now that knows where I can get something that is a little more durable to replace my worn out stock steering spindles. I've got the front passenger side steering knuckle (spindle) off and it's really scraped up bad. Please send me a reply and let me know where I can find something more substantial.

The stock knuckles are too (crap)soft. Spend the money and go aftermarket for durability. Pack the bearing with new grease(waterproof) and surround them with grease when installing. I purchased my knuckles from Hunterworks. Other places have them also.
