WHEEL HUB BEARING HAS PLAY IN IT

2001 Pontiac Bonneville • 6 cylinder FWD Automatic • 327,000 miles

When I jack up the front end of my 2001 Bonneville, I notice there is a little movement from the top of the wheel to the bottom, maybe 3/8 inch or so. Tires Plus tells me that the bearing is shot and that it needs to be replaced before the car can be aligned. I have replaced the hub bearing assembly before so there is not 357,000 miles on it. Maybe 100k or more.

All it can be is bearing if lugs are tight if no noise keep driving

So can it be aligned with this little bit of play or movement? The other side has no movement in and out.

If Tech is any good they won't align
