Default Front wheel bearing/alignment issue

Happy Holidays to all.

Here's my issue. Purchased a 2000 9 5 with 105K miles, mx history not known. Had to replace left front wheel bearing shortly thereafter. 10,000 miles later I had to again replace the left front wheel bearing. Dealer aligned the steering wheel and wheels, now car pulls right when it never did before. Dealer says no camber adjustment on the car to correct constant left steering wheel pressure to offset right drift. They tell me they can start replacing suspension components as a trial and error method to correct the problem. Any thoughts as to correct the pull/drift without just replacing parts? Two wheel bearings within 10,000 miles seems quite excessive, underlying issues causing the failure... any thoughts there? Love the car, but its starting to cost me much money.

Thanks foryour thoughts.

Go to an independent mechanic that does alignments. They might be able to point out the problem.
