Default 2004 Turbo 2.4 - front wheel bearings

When I changed the front wheel bearings i noticed that one spindle had a lip in it and the other didn't. When I put the wheel bearings in one went in flush and the other went in and stopped at the lip and was not flush, partially exposed. After a few weeks of driving I noticed a grinding noise on the right side where the wheel bearing stopped at the lip. does anyone know what could be making the noise and which is right? The one with the lip or the one without the lip?

Did you compare the width of the two bearings. You may have an older spindle that used a narrower bearing.

Did you compare the new bearings with the old bearings before putting the new bearings on? Do you still have the old bearings?
