3 sets of rear bearings in 95K

3 sets of rear bearings in 95K is excessive!! My 2007 Focus SES has ~85K miles and it's on the original set of rear bearings.

No offense man but I would have to think you have an issue some place else such as other damage/worn parts causing premature failure, using extremely inferior parts, improper replacement procedures or improper lubrication.
