My wheel bearing on my car. How do I determine which wheel/bearing it is on my car?

That's why I posted up about it [surface change vs noise]. I was thinking it was my tires too and ignored it for about 2-3 weeks.

Jack up the rear so one tire is up and spin it by hand, you should hear the whirring or grinding on the wheel/bearing that is bad.

Autozone took the old ones back, didnt even look at them, but that could be store specific. visual inspection didn't show anything, really no way to prove it in my case.

I always hammer in/out my bearings, u-joint & wheel joints, but couldnt find anyone on here who did that with these or the fronts. so I'm waiting for my press and i'll pick up some timmys.

The back bearings go so much on my focus. It seems like every 15k im losing one. Thankfully, with my Auto zone warranty i just bring the busted one back and get a new one free.

At least its not just me. I've had an alignment done, suspension is new, rotors aren't warped and I was even back on my stock wheels when this one started making noise. Changed to my new Enkeis and still noisy. I've read many other posts of people having issues with rear bearings. My factory ones didn't even last 60k.
