I'd consider getting in good light, identifying the serrated side of the hanger and clamping it with vice grips, big suckers, just need a tiny bit of bite to hold the axle still.
Last bearing cleaning with my D/A10 to D/A45 conversion with ti parts, one axle was floating, I just centered it and tightened the axle nuts, next time I'll squeeze it a bit.

Mort's idea of red loctite is good, I'd use blue so it's not frozen, just secure.

Also roughing up the axle serrations, digging out the grooves a bit to add meat to the equation, metal takes up space, might be a fix.
