The #1 item cited in accident investigations is complacency. Typically 100s if not 1000s of times person was doing it unsafe without an accident. That removes the sense of vulnerability. That...

Can the axle stub be separated from the arm? If so, take it to a machine shop and they will metal spray and re grind it to repair it good as new.

Guage in dash isnt very accurate so wouldn't go by that as gospel as could be off 5 psi high or low. If alarm isnt sounding you will be fine as it goes off if pressure drops under 4psi.

If key was out and it's not slipping anymore it is probably galled on the shaft now (SS can do that). Hopefully you won't ever have to remove it as you might have to cut the shaft up to get it out.
