The one way, or auto hub isn't a bearing its a torrington clutch. Clean all the grease you can out of it. Coat everything with a light coat of tri-flo or atf (tranny fluid)

Drip some tri flo down onto it once in a while and it should be fine.

Also if its a Raptor, don't over tighten the lower jesus bolt, that will distort the gear and make the auto hub lock up.
