replacing hub assembly, etc. repair after catastrophic failure

i had an extreme case of hub assembly failure, actually locked up the wheel while driving. thanks to the wealth of information here, i was able to get everything torn apart despite never messing with it before and i'm ready to order parts. a few questions...

i'll be replacing the hub assembly and outer hub lock, since upon inspection both have only traces of bearings, mostly just chunks of metal. my stub axle is questionable, the splines and seal surfaces are fine, but the shaft itself is a little chewed up. i talked with a local guy who said it wouldn't be an issue, but i read something on a post here or elsewhere that contradicted that. isn't that where the spindle bearing (i think thats what its called) rides? can i smooth it out or should i replace, or is it truly not an issue?

the knuckle? ( the part held by the ball joints that houses the stub axle and seal behind the hub) is in decent shape, but does have one good gouge in it right where the seal will sit. i think i can smooth it out pretty well and it doesn't appear that it would compromise its ability to keep dust/water out. That's all that seal does right, any problems with smoothing it and keeping it?

as far as parts, i know im in for a:
hub assembly
hub locker
hub seal (the one that mounts on the stub axle)
axle dust seal, that mounts on the other side of the u joint and seals the axle tube

will the washer assortments and thrust washer come with the hub assembly or do i need to buy them seperately? they're pretty trashed too.

any other parts or seals that will not come with the above parts that i'm not thinking of?

do i need to be worried about anything inside the front axle since i came to a grinding halt (quite literally) while driving? wasn't going fast, 20-25 i would guess.

once i get this side back together, i plan to do the driver side also, since i see from the back of the wheel that the seal is compromised.

thanks for any help

i doubt the hub assembly will come with the thrust washer and spacer washers. The bearing rides on the race which is the last inch or so of the stub axle against the u joint. if that race is damaged u will continue to chew up bearings.
