cwf.... I think you have a very valid point. The bearings were installed correctly. It was the axle that was off. That would seem to affect the opposite side as well.

Sitting at a stop light some may notice that the car in front has a wheel/axle out of adjustment. It is at an angle. Tire wear is the FIRST indication, and then the wheel bearings pay for it.

In my poorer days to supplement car parts for my youthful attraction to rough idling cams and higher compression pistons and head work... I used a carpenter's level to adjust the front wheel suspension, so they were vertical. There is an angle specified by the design, but a front end alignment cost money.

If we all knew today from experience, repair and service shops would be out of business.

I do miss the grease under the fingernails and no two knuckles without skin missing... but youth spent being busy was a good alternative to sitting around today sending text messages and selfies to one another for recreation.

My 2008 Classic has the Dexter Nev-R-Lube bearings. Should I probably get them inspected now the trailer is 8 years old. The trailer saw minimal use when I purchased in 2013 and since then I've only take two long trips of 3000 miles each and short trips locally. I've probably put less than 10k miles.
