Axle replacement in Dallas

Hi:

DW brought my attention to the rear wheels today. She said they look funny and has been meaning to mention...

Looks like we managed to bend the rear axle somehow!???

Does anyone know a reputable shop in or around Dallas TX that can replace it without requiring a mortgage on the house?

I don't think it's a particularly difficult job to do, but I don't have the tools to do it (jacks, jackstands etc) and wouldn't know what to do with the old one afterwards, as we're full-timers.

TIA

I had a bent axle on a Forest River toy hauler. I called all over the San Antonio area and no one had the machinery or skills to rebend it which everyone told me was possible. I ended up taking the trailer to Wagner RV in Castroville and they ordered a direct replacement from Dexter (I think it was). Install was a no brainer; could have easily done it as I do have jacks/jackstands, etc and tools but just let that shop take care of it as labor was pretty minimal.
