Default Front Wheel Bearings

I have a 2006 Silverado 1500. I just had to replace the passenger side wheel bearings when my truck has just under 75,000 miles. I checked the other side after replacing the other and it seems that very shortly I will be replacing the driver side too. Does anyone know why this would happen without having a ton of miles on the truck? Or does anoyone know someone else that has had problems like this as well? Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum. They go when they go. Especially they don't take lateral forces too well, like when you scrub against sidewalks.

Thanks for the welcome. That's pretty much what I figured but I thought I would check.

This is one area you don't want to cheap out with a bargain aftermarket hub/bearing assembly. Just a FYI for others who may come across this thread.

Also, torsion keys love to wear the heck out of front end parts and just offroad or rough road conditions will tear em up.
