housing may well need to be changed, but I am afraid I am no expert on the escorts.

Moving to the escort forum, hopefully someone more knowledgeable can help.

The first thing that springs to mind without any disrespect to yourself, I have no idea what your mechanical background or knowledge is but are they being fitted correctly?

As above, sounds like the hub is bent causing excess wear
