OK; I installed all these parts last week.
The bearing is held by the pressure on the hub bolt against the axle hub; the seat for the axle is the bearing face.
Properly torqued, there shouldn't be any movement.
To install these, you have to rotate it as you tighten it, to seat the bearings against the hub, and apply the proper preload to them.
You want to check the bearings before you install them; one had grease, one did not. Same part ordered at the same time.
The hub will not wiggle at all after the hub bolt was properly torqued; you are basically kissing the two inner bearing races up against each other, the hub, and the axle, 250 ft-lb worth.
This is basically one part you can't overtorque unless you strip the hub bolt.
Rayo, The one in your pic likely loosened up or was not properly torqued.
Or it ate all that **** out after the bearings wore out.
If this hub fails, I will triple post a result, with pix, lol.
