Part of me thinks the axle was junk from the beginning...but I will never know as I bought it used in 2012.

Really getting angry about all this...

Update-

Shop that did the work called...they are instant that they did nothing wrong and I can't really argue. The wheel bearing took out the hub, drum, brake assembly and of course the bearing. They dissassbled the hub in front of the bad bearing and said that bearing is going as well. The spindle is still good and the axle does not need to be replaced. I agreed to pay cost for the parts and the tow bill, they do the labor. Still not satisfied with the outcome but it could be worse I guess.

We are getting ready to close on our house next week that will allow me to do this type of work on my own for peace of mind.
