Ball Bearings

Im replacing ball bearings on my cruisers. My question is, does a particular side (either the sprocket side or other side) wear out more than the other. Im asking because on both bikes, the sprocket side bearings were literally falling out as compared to the access side (left) which were fine. My logic would tell me the sprocket side would take more abuse due to the crank but I just wanted to confirm that ??

In all honesty these bearings were cheap oem parts (huffy) and I want to replace with better quality ones 5/16 x9. should I just take the replacements ie: a bearings a bearing or is there a better bearing to put in its place..

Im off to my lbs tomorrow, they have these replacements but I figure I would ask here as to have some backup info thanks.
