Suggest you have a professional do this one. If everything is not put together correctly, you can lose control of the vehicle and hurt yourself or others.

To check the joints jack the wheel off the ground by the lower control arm and putting one hand on the top of the wheel and the other on the bottom try moving the wheel in and out. If you can then one or both ball joints are bad. Have someone move the wheel and watch the joints you will see if one or both are bad. While the wheel is off the ground move the wheel from side to side, that will tell you if you have bad steering linkage. You don't have to hold the steering wheel straight when changing the joints. But you will need an alignment when your done. Note; When installing the new parts try to get them as close to up and down as you can. Also if you change the tie-rods count the turns and install the new tie-rods to the same turns.

Has the car been in an accident? You may have to replace the upper ball joints as well. And you will have to get an alignment after that. I would get the tire set correctly before I started changing bearings. Of course it may be that the bearing is so bad that that is what is causing the wheel to lean so badly?
With the car jacked up, can you move the wheel laterally - it should be very tight.
