Side to Side wheel movement


My passenger side wheel wiggles side to side with about an inch of freeplay on both sides. What is this an indicator of? Tie-rods or balljoints? My axle needs replaced I know that already. My wheel squeaks, creecks, and everything else when driving. Thanks.

Sounds like you need a wheel bearing, how many miles are on the car?

I would bet it is the wheel bearing. Replace it and you should fix your problem.

Does it move top and bottom or just side to side?

Side to side indicated tie rods. Top to bottom AND side to side indicates wheel bearings. Bad wheel bearings make a roaring sound while driving. Hard to miss.

ONLY side to side. Now top and bottom movement. I put the front end back together, and when I originally took the tie-rod from the knuckle, I noticed the inner tie-rod just dropped straight down and had no stiffness to it. Last tie-rod I put on a car was rigid and not completely loose. Wheel bearings have been replaced recently. Did a motor swap and 5spd swap, trying to work all the bugs out now. Damn passenger side wheel is squeaking like crazy. It doesn't roar though.
