So today something went wrong with my hub so I took it apart cleaned it regreased it then reassembled it and now it works fine. I dont know what I did but I must have done something right. Has this ever happened before?

Probably too much grease or something. I don't know but taking parts apart and reinstalling sometimes works.

sometimes dirt gets in the internals and can mess with it. there are tons of things that could have happened. but cleaning and regreasing a hub every now and then never hurts

I didn't mean lube. I used silicone oil and it totally killed the grease. Then I have to use Vaseline cause it's the thickest stuff I've got and it works pretty well. I do have white lithium ion grease but it's in a spray can it's kinda liquidy and it makes the bearings spin way too fuckin fast.. So I add that and vaseline.

Would anti-seize be good inside sealed bearing?

only on the bearing races. so where the axle touches the bearing and wheare the hub/frame touches the bearing. dont use it on the actual sealed ball bearing part

That's pretty much normal routine, hubs require maintenance.

Thats what I figured but didn't know if everyone does it or if it needs to be done every once in a while.

the last time something went wrong with my hub was when i regreasing the driver for maintance and when i put it on and i strted to put a lot of pressure on my cranks it would skip so loud that you would shit yourself so much. well thats what i get for a stock hub

Most people check up their hubs every once in a while, it also depends how hard you ride.
My friends destroyed the axle of a Vandero, got a Fly front hub and destroyed three sets of bearings and now I ordered for him a new axle for the Vandero so I guess that's also a factor.
