    Ok gotta be the wheel bearings change it out put back together Wow the play is still there gotta be the lower ball joint.

    More then likely you will never know just want wrong or prove just why .

    The bigger question is, what did you hit to warrant getting an alignment only 10,000 miles after your last alignment? Take it back to the shop that did the wheel bearings, tell them what the tire shop said, and let them double-check the front end. There's no rocket science here.
