Default changed the front wheel bearing today

twice!! i put in the bearing. drove about a mile and was like WTF!? is that me? listen a little closer, it IS me! maybe i used the wrong torque stick and the lugnuts came loose? back on the rack to see.. lugnuts are tight. axle nut is tight. wheel wobbles a lot and easily. hmph. take it back apart, the bearing moved. apparently the 2001 has a 33mm and 2002+ have a 39mm wide bearing. anyways. i'm an expert now. all is happy in PT land. LOL!

All the 1st gen Neon guys change axles to PT or old Turbo Dodge so outer stub doesn't break:

I THINK you can change that tin bearing retainer piece of tine and swap hubs, but never seen or hear it done
