But ive put at least 2000-3000 miles on it so far and havent had a bit of trouble.
Getting the hub out of the spindle you have shouldnt be too hard, it just might take a little effort. But swapping the entire spindle isnt necessary IMO, plus you will need to pay to have it aligned afterwards if you swap the whole spindle.
I say since you already bought a used one, you might as well put it on, whats it going to hurt? When I first bought my car it had a bad hub, and the dealer replaced it with a used one, it lasted roughly 15,000 miles before the wheel-speed sensor inside it crapped out, but it still worked fine mechanically.
