Just get some one-piece axles and put in there and you won't have to worry about it anymore. It's a common problem with the AMC20.

Get Superior Gear or Moser brand one piece axles. They are supposed to be a little sturdier than the other one piecers out there. I've had superior for 7-8 years and haven't had a problem with them.
