    I've never heard of such a thing. I've heard of a spindle, but never a "spindle insert." I'd tell them I want to see it. It's your car, so they have to show you if you ask them to.

    If a car is driven far enough on a collapsed bearing, the hub and spindle can be damaged.

    That makes sense to me. What doesn't is the "spindle insert." Sounds like they came up with a new name for an old part.
