    The problem is, how does the spindle stay on the axle? When I install the brackets with the spacers there is a 1/2" gap around the spindle. Is this bracket supposed to press itself against the spindle to hold it there?

    If it breaks, it wasn't good enough!

    The spindle is welded to the housing tubes.

    That "space" you see after bolting the spacers and brackets to the flange is NORMAL. Nothing to worry about there. That's as far as the plate goes to sit on that flange.
