I have had it replaced 2 times just this year. Three times within the last two years. What would cause it to go bad so quickly?

    I am not sure about the parts. I just an bought them from O'Reily. Had a friend put them on. I did not get an alignment after getting them put on.

    Agree with 1, besides low quality parts may be the same in quality of repair! Retainer nut under or over torque can shorten the bearings service life! Actually under torque worse.

    Maybe you're shy in front of your dad because he intimidates you or maybe you don't know him well enough.

    What in the heck are you talking about? How does that help with any auto repair?? I guess you just answered the wrong question on the wrong site! I hope.
