Did you use the right kind of grease?

check your ball joints you could have ruined them installing the new bearings, also your CV boot could have a small unnoticable rip in it which could throw grease into the wheel

It could be a glob of extra grease from the install. But It could be also a tore boot from a front shaft, if its 4 wheel drive. But still could be just extra glob of grease that caught the shaft and whipped all around. Possibilities but you should have it checked.

more than likely if it is 4WD, there is a pinhole in the cv boot.
