Im not and not going to drive it until I fix the problem, whatever it might be but if it is the ball joints, it looks like a hard job with only one person, if I lift the tuck on one side only and try to move the tire out and inward and it has play, its either the ball joints or bearings?

Hold the tire at 3 and 9 o'clock. Shake the tire left and right. Move your hands to 12 and 6 0. Clock. Repeat process. If it is wheel bearings, the amount of travel should be similar.
While performing the above, note which area has movement.
Turn the wheel manually and test if the wheel wobbles. For wheel bearings failure, the brake pedal would seem low the first time you depress the pedal wihile driving and if you pump the pedal a second time the height would increase. There is a possibility you would feel the brake pedal pulsing and felt at steering wheel. If it is the arms, the brake pedal feel should not differ much.
