Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
A normal amount of angle is proper for the kind of car or truck you drive. Horizontal angle is called "Toe-In" or "Camber" and Vertical angle is called "Caster." A wheel alignment specialist will be able to tell you quickly whether your car or truck requires the $100 wheel alignment procedure to assure your tires wear evenly on each axle. Front tires always wear more, particularly in front wheel drives vehicles as the tires have two kinds of wear: steering wear from side to side, and increased friction wear from torque application from acceleration. FWD vehicles generally require tire rotations twice as often as RWD vehicles for this reason. Always get a wheel alignment when replacing both front tires with new ones to increase tire life.

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.

may only need front end alignment if you take it to someone to have that done they should check all front end parts to make sure you don't have any other problems

Remove the bolts from the brackets. There is probably about 4 of them. Don't drop it on yourself ;)
