Tie rods (wear item), wheel bearings (wear item) jack it up (safety, use jack stands) and try to move the suspended wheel grabbing it at 12 and 6 then at 9 and 3, wiggle the wheel, it should all be tight (no movements side to side or up and down. If the bearing is shot, the wheel will seem loose in all directions, if a ball joint is loose/worn, just that area the ball joint attaches to would be loose, if a tie rod is bent or loose, that wheel will move independently from the rest of the parts attaching it. You can use a big pair of Channel lock pliers to "squeeze " the joints, they should be very stiff and hard to compress.
