Default Axle doesn't look good / question

This axle looks cracked and if you move it back and forth in neutral the inside moves differently than the outside.. I figure this axle doesn't have two peices so I probably need to get a new one unfortunately but I figured I'd ask just in case..

That "crack" is the brake rotor hub where it contacts the axle. The hub rides on splines, and that movement is just the splines rocking back and forth slightly. So even though that joint looks chipped a little, its not actually a "crack" and is totally fine to ride on.
