Axle shaft grinding

Hey guys


Was changing my bearings today on my rear right hand wheel and noticed these little marks. Here's a pic of the marks. This bad? Hope not.

They don't look "fresh" (as in, post installation, as they're grey like the rest of the shaft)

Probably pre heat treatment when they were made.

Stuff like that causes me to buy upgraded parts. YMMV

gotcha, thanks guys! My bearing went out while I was on my way back from NC and I thought it might've happened then. I was hoping it had been like that for a while.
