I have a 2004 Kia Sorento and it keeps going through wheel bearings every couple of months. I have not found anyone who can tell me what causes this. Any ideas?

It all depend,s back or front,may be that the strut,s are out of line,or if on front cv axel,s are not balanced,causing the bearing,s to wear out.Or improper installed.


Front driver side. I had one person tell me to check the spindle because it may be warped. Could that cause it also?

The front has,cv axels,for the spindle,but the wheel hub assembly may be bad,or the cv axel is out of balance.
