Default honda 400 ex swap axle suggestions

Haven't posted in awhile, started a golf cart project a few years ago and the life happened, but getting back to the project.
I have a donor quad Honda EX400 I already have the power train and suspension mounted. I was going to use the factory rear suspension off the quad but the carrier bearings are wiped out and I'm not super excited about the width and most of all question the durability of it even in good working order.
I want to build my own rear suspension but having trouble sourcing an axle. Id like to keep the factory sprockets (520) and brake rotor if possible. I can build the " swing arm " and shock mounts.

Carrier bearings are not too expensive, I did a kaw 220 bayou swap, I know it's not the power of a 400ex but I clocked it at 53 mph just takes a minute to get there, it also was narrow, ended up buying spacers from e-bay and my rims were steel so I cut the center of the rims and moved them in for more offset I first built it in 2016 then re-did the thing in 2017, and she's still going today. just wanted to say it looks pretty good so far, can't wait to see more of it.
