The bearing will die way prematurely if not torqued to the full torque spec. Also, many of the 'lifetime warranty' Autozone and O'Reilly bearings are crap, I personally experienced one with absolutely no grease in it, failed starting first day. The replacement BCA has been running for a long long time now. Not even pressed, knocked in with a hammer but doable if one knows how. Almost every one I do like that, none dead yet. Got a hammered in rear Focus drum one now that's been in car at least 3 years. People here say Timken is good.
