New mechanic suggests cracked rear axle hub?

No one wants to touch my bus. I've called at least a dozen shops, I even brought it in to one or two. I have another appointment at Cashman Caterpillar in Las Vegas, but was warned to "bring my own parts" or expect to leave it for "awhile".

Has anyone else had a cracked hub and what should be done?
I haven't had your problem, but maybe your taking the bus to the wrong places. You don't take the bus to a Cat House for a chassis or drive train problem. The Cat House will know how to repair you engine but may not have a clue on the rear end or axles. I would suggest a Class 8 truck repair shop. They should have access to parts and the knowledge on what and how to fix it. I have two or three places very close to me that do excellent work on rear ends, axles, brakes, etc.
