hub assembly breaking instantly 95 k1500

i have now broke 4 hub assemblys

after breaking the 3rd hub i replaced

upper/lower ball joints
upper/lower control arm bushings
tie rod end

i started out with the cheapo "house autozone hub" my 4th hub was the best i can buy from autozone

i am running maximum offset rims with 31x10.50 r15s

the only thing i can think is left is something wrong with my CV axel with the nut fully tightened on the hub there is maybe 1/4 of play in the hub assembly

just looking for advice or if anyone else has had the same problem everyone just tries blaming my tires when before this i had a 94 running 33x14.50 on maximum offset 12 inch rims with 1 inch wheel spacers and never broke a hub in my life i had the truck for 500k miles
