If this is a 2005 F-150 4x4. Usually if there is movement up and down, itmight possibly be the lower ball joints and not the wheel bearing, to verify that it is indeed bearing play you can grab a hold of your tire (with tire of the ground) and try and move it side to side instead of up and down. If you can still feel the movement then it is the wheel bearing. To get to the wheelbearing you will first have to remove the tiny center dust cap in the middle of the wheel. There should be a 13mm bolt you will need to remove under that cap. Next you will have to remove the brake caliper and caliper bridge, then remove the brake rotor. On the backside of the knuckle assembly you will see 4 bolts that hold the hub assembly (your wheel bearing) on. There also may be a plastic ring around the back of the hub assembly too that has vacuum lines running to it for the vacuum hub,this will be held on by 4 or so 8mm bolts, once all these bolts and the4 bolts holding the actuall hub assembly on are removed, you should be able to remove the hub (bearing) assembly from the front of the knuckle assy. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 98 altima loose wheel bearing
This can be due to bad ball joints or bad tie rods inner or outer. If the wheel being has play in it then it may not be tightened enough the center nut on the axle may be loose. If not then double check and make sure something else is not bad in front end. To check ball joint support car up on jack stands grab tire in the top and the bottom and check for play, to check inner and out tie rods grab wheel when elevated from the front and rear of the tire and check for play. Good luck and contact if you need more help. thanks for using FIX YA

First check if there is a screw in the outer side of the axle on trucks there is usually an adjusting screw to tighten the bearing. be carefull not to over tighten

its possible it could be a wheel hub bearing,but it could be a faulty brake caliper or a brake hose,if it pulls when the brake is applied then you have a brake issue
