I can get the whole axle in the US for $75, Ford wanted $300+ for one. Might wanna check like a NAPA or other auto parts store if you have one. I tried Rockauto.com...but couldn't come up with anything for you.

Wait, you are running the unit bearing without the CV shaft? If so, DO NOT! That outer stub and nut is what holds the unit bearing together, my friend lost his front wheel doing 25mph when he made that mistake.

At least take apart the CV and put teh outer stub with nut in it.

You could buy some gently used ones, and save a ton of money: Axle Shafts
