WHEEL MOVEMENT WHEN TIRED PUSHED

1994 Ford Explorer

Shakes or Wobbles problem
1994 Ford Explorer Two Wheel Drive Automatic

The passenger side front wheel will rock back and forth when I either kick or push on the tire. It moves front to back in relation to the actual vehicle itself. The movement is considerable and it also makes a ping type noise when it does move.

IT sounds like a bad hub bearing. If it has that much side to side movement, have it checked ASAP. Infact, I question if it is safe to drive. Please be careful.

Let me know what you find.
