Are you tightening them to the right tension? Are you packing the bearings properly(forcing the grease through the bearing)? If you're doing everything right, maybe they're just crap bearings- try another brand if possible. What do the bearings look like when you take them out?

The bearings are corectly packed with grease and tensioned corectly.There is no warning when they are about to go.You are driving when you suddenly start to hear a noise coming from the rear wheels then the brakes grab.When you jack up the car the whole drum assembly is lose and when you take it off the bearings have completly colasped.I have tried at least two different brands of bearings with the same result.

Thanks for your reply :wnc:
