How often do hub bearings go bad?

Like the title states I'm interested to see how long hub bearing last for others. I replaced mone when I bought the truck 2 years ago. Since then I have replaced both again. Recently the drivers side has started groaning again. It kinds passes me off that I've gone through 4 bearings in about 24000 miles. Other suggestions of what to check also would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

Depends if you buy the cheapies or not. I'd buy the timkins. If you have a wide offset it premature wears them too.

See that's why im lost. Stock wheels and stock size tire. All high grade suspension parts. The only thing I haven't replaced on this thing is the shocks. They were new when I bought it.

I get about 80k on the motorcrafts.

Just got the cheapo ebay units in Jan. They appear to be the same as parts house brands.
