I had bearings come apart in mine also, cleaned up the damage and put it back together with new bearings and seals. Ran it almost a year, tore it down and it's fine. A little work with a dremel removing what was in the way and it was good to go. I did need a new center tube though.
If you clean it up and the new bearing goes in tight like it should and turns freely you should be ok.
Bearings and seals were $35 or so and the center tube is $10 or $15 I think.
Just an option to consider.

I tried to clean it up but the bearing sat in it way to loose.I've been looking on ebay and i think i'll end up getting the rad raptor CNC MACHINED 6061 AIRCRAFT GRADE BILLET ALUMINUM MAGNUM TAPERED BEARING CARRIER for 189$. I just hope that it'll work with my stock axle
