I auto cross and run track days with my 2001 SE daily driver. As a result, I replace bearings more frequently than normal. Are there certain replacements that are better then others?

I went thru rear bearings about every 20k in my 2gn. Started getting expensive and annoying. I took one apart before putting it in the car to inspect it. The "grease" they use is ultra low quality, there's way too little of it, and they don't pack it into the bearings at all. They were never mopar brand, but I did buy varying quality bearings from $50 to $125. Didn't matter.

I cleaned it out and packed in some pricey synthetic racing grease into them before installing. Never had a problem after that. I would never bolt in a bearing again without packing my own grease into it.
