Front wheel hub assembly question.

I just installed new front right and left wheel bearing assemblies. The job was a breeze. The old assemblies came off easily and in one piece. The new ones installed as easily as the old ones came off.

Both of the new hub assemblies were *** brand and looked identical. However the one installed on the driver's side spun noticeably easier by hand once the wheel was mounted before lowering the car. The car drives great and quiet. Is this cause for concern that one seemed to spin more freely than the other?

Probably just how the caliper was re-installed over the rotor rather than the hub bearings themselves.

I wouldn't worry about it if everything is quiet, etc.
