I have a 2004 colorado with a 5 cyl engine, andXXXXX The passenger side hub keeps breaking. I have replaced it 4 times in the last 6 months.There is no uneven wear on the tire,as one would expect with an alignment problem.I have looked at the ball joints but they appear to be ok, on this I am not positive.Anyway the hub i just put on a week ago when i jack up the passenger side is now loose.help!
You are talking about the wheel bearing hub assembly?
These hub assemblies fail because they are either over torqued or under torqued, but if you are using a torque wrench and are torquing the large nut to the right ft lbs you probably have a knuckle that has a problem causing the bearing to go bad.
