I replaced my wheel bearing a month ago but the tire still leans inward. and now it leans so bad the tire is against the strut. im wondering if my strut is damaged or shot because the bottom of it has rust holes.

Yes, Brad, you have a severe problem.
Please try not to drive the car at all until the assembly ( all the defective pieces) are replaced, or you will likely have that wheel fall off really soon.
If it were me, I would not even drive it to a repair shop, I would have it towed.
God bless your efforts.

2007 dodge caliber rt slap stick put new tires on 3 months ago driver side front tire is worn cant let off wheel car pulls bad to the right side of the road

The popping could be from a bad CV axle joint, or a bad wheel bearing. Better get checked, sounds very worn. Raise the wheel on a jack and watch for play. Grab wheel at 3 and 9 o'clock, and shake back and forth-watch for play. Wheel bearing? CV joint -is boot still good? Ball joints at bottom of wheel attaching point to the control arm-check this for play, too.

2002 dodge neon left rear wheel looks crookd and vibrating. just had shcocks alignment and stabilzers changed and still looks crooked

When you had the alignment done the place should have given you a printout of the changes. The mechanics might not have done a 4 alignment. At any rate if it is making noise it is most likely a bearing that is bad.

Wheel bearing

This is usually a balljoint problem. Although you can try lifting the wheel off the ground and pulling the top of the tire, some put a bar on the ground just under the tire and lift up.
With a 4x4 there is extra hardware which may interfere with wheel travel during this test. The idea is there is a knee action which the balljoint pivots on. Over or under jacking can mask the travel or slop in the joint, so try testing from different jacking heights.
Now a wheel bearing can cause this problem if it is bad enough. If this is a 4x4 the hub bearing is more substantial.

Front passenger wheel leaning on 98 expedition

This is most likely a ball joint problem. If you can, jack that tire up in the air and see if you can move the whole tire in and out from the top. Try to see if there is movement in the ball joints while you move the tire. If that is not the problem, it could be a wheel bearing, but i would check the ball joints first. Hope this helps.

Why does my neon make a loud noise id rive, after

From your description it certainly sounds like a bearing but since you've changed it I would look at the tire for any chopping or cupping as this will cause a noise that is speed related as well. To verify a wheel bearing as you drive the car carefully weave from one side of the lane to the other. A wheel bearing will change pitch as you change the load on it and usually the bearing that is quiet to the left is the right bearing that is bad and vise versa.
