('04 Cavalier; 120K miles) I'd been having a whining noise on (highway) left turns. I found significant play in the right rear hub assembly, which I replaced. In less than 200 miles, the same condition had recurred. I got another under warranty, and installed that. Now, after ~500 miles, there is again substantial play.
I doubt that I got two bad units, though that's not totally out of the question. When I replaced the first one, the mounting bolts were all tight, and everything looked OK (to me). Tire wear has been even throughout. The car tracks OK.
Any thoughts on what might cause such rapid failure would be appreciated.
(For those not familiar with the Cavalier, it has a 'hub assembly', that mounts with 4 bolts. There is no spindle nut.)
