Default My PT eats wheel bearings

it seems like every year I need to replace a wheel bearing on my '05.

Am I doing something wrong or are these a fragile part of the car?

what about your ground wires, are they good? i'm talking about the ground wire that's connected to the shock or something. if i can find a pic of it i'll show you what i mean.

What are the symptoms you're getting that tells you you need bearings?

What WolfmanG is referring to is this "sticky" which on the top of the suspension part of the forum...

Front Ground Straps to struts, WHY?

Good Answer ... I wonder about those with 24's sticking 8 inches out of the wheelwells.

How many miles and which bearings are failing front or rear, have any failed more than once?

Also if front, which side.
