TJ D44 Bent Axle Flange. Options?

I noticed a slight wobble in my passenger rear the other day. Pulled the tires and drum, let it idle in gear, and noticed the flange wobbles as it turns. What's going to be my cheapest option to make it right? I thought about swiping what I need from the junk yard but I don't know what all is compatible and I can't find what I need online.

Thanks, Kirkman

Replace the axle shaft.

If its just a shaft they're relatively cheap. You probably won't find a D44 in a junkyard ha

I've found XJs and ZJs with a 44 rear but I'm not sure the shafts are the same length. But, I guess it would make more sense to buy a new one. Any bands that I need to stay away from? I need to find the best bang for my buck right now.

The axle from the XJ is the same length but... There is always a but... The retainer plates are different. They would need to be swaped for the correct TJ drum or disk retainers.
