If it is the regular sealed bearing assy, there is no grease required. We sometime put a little lube on the axel splines to help them slide into the bearing but once the nut is tight nothing can move.
The bearings usually make a whining noise when bad. I dont think I have ever heard one pop but there is always a first time
