Default Front wheel bearings

Any help as to why my 2002 has front wheel bearing problems? I'm getting ready to replace my 5th one in 62,000 miles.

You might change the store that presses the bearing, if they press on anything but the outer race they will cause a little damage to the bearing and race speeding up its early demise.
