Sounds like you didnt tighten up that outer locknut enough. I torque em down to 250 foot pounds.

You may want to clarify, it sounds as if you are working on a truck with re-buildable wheel bearings vs a truck with unit bearings?

If my assumption is correct did you also change the races when you did the bearings? What condition is the spindle in? Did you in fact torque everything down to factory specs? Did you fully pack the bearings with grease? Did you buy nice quality bearings? Something is also warn out or you did the job improperly.

If my assumption is incorrect and you purchased unit bearings I will bet 5 dollars you got the shitty ones from autozone.

So what is your question???

I'm going to assume you have a TIB/TTB front end....just an FYI, torque specs actually matter when doing those wheel bearings, and just as a precaution (or prevention of what happened to you) I check my wheel bearings at ~100 miles and then 500 miles after I do them.

Really though, it's not that hard to make them last - mine have roughly 40k on them now....lifted truck with bigger tires....

You may not have had the bearing races seated all the way the first time. When you drove it they seated and made the nut loose.

it's a BEARING, not a barring. this should not be a spell check item if you're old enough to drive.
btw, when you become a cook, are you going to open your own place, perhaps The RoadKill Cafe? as an off-roader, you could supply your own meat for fixin's like Flat Cat Stew, Dead Deer with Dumplings, Rack of Racoon, Center Line Skunk, Rigor Mortis Tortise, etc.
