Default Replaced Wheel bearing Hub and Broke again immediately?

There is no play in the wheel when jacked up, is this good enough to rule out ball joints?

Either it wasn't put on straight or you have a bent knuckle. I'm thinking it's not the ball joints.

UP and down is used to check for ball joints and left to right is for the tie rods. I would use a pry bar at the 6 oclock position on the wheel/tire assembly and lift gently, and record the play there should be little to know play then with both hands at 3 and 9 oclock position wiggle the tire to check for play there. The tie rod and ball joint is more effective with a second person to help as you or they may be able to see something other then the tie rods or ball joints being bad.

i got a 96 ram 4x4 and when the first front left wheel bearing went out, i changed it with a masterpro, then a month later it started grinding....changed it and upgraded to a precision wheel bearing and its been 2 months and its out again. I dont know a fix to it but were in the same boat.
