Need 1996 2WD Spindle (and help)

Hi from Huntsville. Would anyone happen to have a spare spindle? I have a 1996 F-150, 2WD. The outer bearing's inner race welded itself to the spindle. The truck is north of Nashville, and I need a spindle to replace the one that is on there.

I also need help in how to get it off. There was some sort of collar that came out with a long chisel and hammer. Is a pickle fork needed to remove the bottom one and the one that mounts to the rod / arm thing at 3 o'clock (yes, that is where I am at on the truck repair ability level). :-)

Do auto parts store rent pickle forks?

If I use a pickle fork, will it damage whatever bushing or bearing is inside the connection on the spindle?

I do have the three nuts off.

I am hoping to get the spindle off to try to repair it. If someone has a spare, or knows of a salvage yard that has one, please let me know. If anyone posts before I can call a Ford dealership, what do they usually sell for and are they usually in stock?

Thank you for any help.

If I have it worded wrong, someone please let me know. I am not sure if the part where the nut threads on is removable from the part with the "ball joints" (the big metal piece with three arms? I just know "it's broke". :-)

Thanks.
