of course, WJ issues

hey guys, im new to this forum thing, but I hear this is where to go if you have questions on builds and what not, and I have 2 jeeps im in the middle of (of course) and am a little stuck. I have a 4" lifted 04 WJ on 31s with a dual steering stabilizer and an stronger front track bar, that I KEEP BLOWING WHEEL HUBS ON. I replaced them about a year ago with the better auto zone option MOOG, which has a 3 year warranty that im about to go take advantage of, but I want to know what other people are doing that would help me not have to replace them annually.


im also restoring an 89 YJ that I may end up having questions on as well

thanks in advance guys!

What do you mean by wheel hubs... wheel hubs are where your wheel studs are pressed into and I’m also pretty sure moog does not make hubs. Do you mean ball joints?

Wheel hubs, hub assembly, unit bearings, wheel bearings, etc. Moog does supply unit bearings for the WJ (513139).

jacksjeeps, are you torqueing the axle but properly? Really isn't much else that is user error with unit bearings. 31" tires should be causing them to fail prematurely. Is toe adjusted correctly? Bad toe will put extra load on the bearings. If all this is good, them maybe the MOOG unit bearings don't last. SKF and Timken would be better replacement. But if you have a 3 year replacement, might as well ride that out.
