    The steel axle just has surface rust, or has it rusted deeply and needs to be repaired/replaced?

    I would suggest removing the wheels. Remove loose rust and generally clean up the surfaces. Wire brush or wire wheel. Do not damage the rear grease seal around the axle hub.

    Then apply a protectant product that will coat the steel surfaces and stay in place long term. I currently use and like CRC Marine Heavy Duty Corrosion Inhibitor spray. It leaves a fairly thick coating with a yellowish appearance.

    This is different from the CRC 6-56 product, which is a much more liquid and thinner spray.

    You might also look for phosphoric acid rust treatment in your local hardware store. I've bought it at Home Depot, I've never seen it at Lowe's. It will turn the rust black and will stop it.
