L118 cutting uneven

Tim I have a problen with my JD L118 cutting uneven. I've tried all the adjusting the height, changing blades etc to no avail. I noticed when I put new blades on that one blade was higher than the other when I spin them by hand. Any ideas on how to check why that happens? I suspect the spindle that holds the blade on is bent but by looking by eye, it appears straight. Is this an easy fix or something major I need to have taked to a JD dealer?? Any ideas would be appreciated....
Dale G. Basgall Tim :
I just repaired three decks in the last couple days. I live on the island of Maui and it rains enough for the grass to grow an inch a day. There are alot of rocks that come up in the soil and when a blade nicks a rock just right and or a stump or coconut it bends the area around where the spindle is attached onto the deck. There is no easy way to fix it but if you can remove the spindles without breaking the bolts (self tappers) then you can straighten out the spindle areas. If you have a shop to work in let me know and I will tell you how I get mine straightened out.
