Unhappy 2010 kawasaki mule 4010

We have three 2010 4010 Kawasaki mules.All three have had problems with the left front tire.The brake drum spline starts to wear out and the tires starts to wobble.Eventually it damages the brake shoes,wheel cylinder,spindle,and axle.We have replaced all the brake parts,drums,and axle.The drum has been replaced several times.It lasts only a couple of months.We have also replaced the front differential.this time the drum lasted three weeks.Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thank you.

make sure the axle nut is tight and the cotter pin is installed if so i would suspect the wheel bearings. The wheel bearings center the axle the axle centers the drum and the knee bone is connected to the thigh bone. if there is play in the bearings it will transfer all the way out to the drum, shoes, backing plate. considering the cost of all those parts you have changed wheel bearings are a drop in the bucket well worth looking into

We have installed two sets of bearings.Everything is torque to specifications.It also wears the tires on both sides.
