Jack the car up and put your hands at 3 and 9 oclock on the wheel, then shake it, any play? If so find out what maves, the outer or the inner.

JAck the front wheel off the ground and push/pull each wheel. There should be no play at all. IF you feel it, look at the tie rod end while some one else shakes the wheel. Grab onto it and you may feel the movement
