First, please turn your caps off. It's considered shouting, and makes it very difficult to read your posts.

On those axle assemblies, it's possible to get a bad reubuilt unit. I replaced the driver's side axle on the 190E 2.6 three times before getting a good unit. Luckily I bought from a good shop that took back the offending units.

I also changed the wheel bearings. Have you checked the rear suspension bushings as well? If you have play, they might contribute to the early demise of an axle.
