in the last year we have replaced the drive axle 3 times and hub 2 times on drivers side and getting pretty good at it lol. The drive axle is bought from autozone so replacement was free now we have to buy it again..is there something else that might be causing it to go bad?

When you say it goes bad , what exactly is wearing out or being damaged ,just the inner joint. ? I've never seen that happen , 3 times in a year ? are you pushing it in all the way into the tranny , it should lock in , sometimes you need to hit it with a rubber mallet to lock it into the tranny. a wheel alignment or a bearing will not damage an axle.
