However, if the old bearing scores the hub on exit, the hub itself may not longer be useful.

How long have your factory bearings lasted? I replaced one rear one so far about 5k miles ago and am at 114k miles. Then again, I reside in a subtropical climate...

thats the problem with one of the hubs , it is off the car , bearing is out and inside of hub doesnt look that good. those have unkown miles , the ones on my 05 only have like 80k , but i figure why not replace them.
