Default front wheel bearing loose

I have replaced my front wheel bearings on my 99 2 wd ranger and they keep loosening up. Bought a new nut kit didnt help. Any ideas??

once you tighten them down the first time and drive a little bit, the bearings seat on the races and it'll loosen up a little bit. tighten them back up.
