Axle whoas

So my 93 yj keeps eating up pinion bearings like candy. I've replaced 4 axles in 3 months. And replaced the bearings twice. Any ideas y. Have the 4.0/ax-15/231 30/35. 1.5 inch shackles 2.5 suspension 3.07 gears

are you replacing the housing when you say replacing axles or just the axles? first thought is the axle housing itself is bad. I would replace the 35 with the ford 8.8. or a 44 from a xj or mj.

I'm replacing the whole axle. And a couple just the bearings. I want to do a 8.8 swap but I don't want to burn up pinion bearings in that to if there is some sort of other issues
