rear wheel hub grind

So im driving along this evening and i hear a grinding in the drivers side rear wheel i get out let the wife take the wheel and i investigate the noise , its a grind as the wheel rotates roughly 6 months ago i replaced the hubs on both sides screwed up the dust cover on the drivers side so im thinking its related to that anyone have any ideas as to what it may be ? I think the bearing is shot thats my only guess.

Totally sounds like the bearing, replace it asap please.


Motorcraft, SKF, Timken or, a premium preloaded drum from NAPA are the only choices.

Stay away from Autozone, etc when it comes to wheel bearings. They just do not hold up.

The rear drum spindle nut torques at 173 ft/lbs. This is very important!

Got em both on bolted up torqued to specification start backing out the driveway and the one i didnt need to fix is grinding and i mean hard , i highly doubt i did it wrong seeing as i did it the same way as the first time is it possible to have a bad bearing fresh out of the box?
