Where can I buy a rear knuckle/spindle for my 2002 Explorer?

In the process of replacing a hub assembly. The bearing on the rear passenger side is completely shot and it was bouncing around in the knuckle so bad that the knuckle is pretty chewed up now. I took the bearing out of it and it looks like if I put the new one it, it will hang out a little bit instead of being flush. Doesn't look safe. So I'm pretty sure I need a new knuckle or spindle. I can't find a rear one online. Help would be appreciated. Thank you.
