DON'T DRIVE IT !! Jack that side up off ground and use a safety stand grab tire and push in at top, and pull out at bottom, then reverse that, pull out at top, and push in on bottom, then do same from side to side, and observe where all the play is in wheel. Could be ball joint, upper or lower, or both, control arms, or bearing as well. Very unsafe to move it like that.

One of my tires is straight and the other one is pointed outwards. the steering wheel is sideways as like im turning

The easiest way to do this is straighten the steering wheel first Brandon. Next is to walk to the back of the truck and eye ball the left front tire from a looking from the side of the back tire. If that one is straight ahead before or after you adjust it, Now check the passenger side the same way.When both look straight, now take a tape measure and measure the distance from the center tread on the right front tire to the center of the left front tire.Say its 61", now do the same behind the front tires. It might say 58". You want to end up with the front measurement being 1/4 of an inch smaller then the back.

Why does my front passenger tire lean outwards at the bottom and inwards at the top?

The most common problem would be a bad lower ball joint. It could also be bad control arm bushings or a combination of the two. Neither is an expensive repair. This should be checked out and repaired soon as it could cause control issues. Hope this helps.

Slack in right front passenger tire. and roughness going down the highway . Is this a wheel bearing out?

Yes, jack the car up so there is no weight on the tire. Now grab the tire on top and bottom and shake. If there is movement, your wheel bearing needs replacing. Let us know if you want to try replacing it yourself.

Saturn SL1, growling and vibration coming from right front wheel,

Might be a hub bearing. Those make a growling noise when they are bad. When it is on jack stands you should be able to put your hands on the top of the tire and the bottom of the tire and move it back and forth. and the same with putting your hands on the right and left side of the tire. if you can and it moves back and forth then the bearing is back. but becarefull not to get the movement confused with a bad ball joint or tire rod. which could also be your problem but they dont make a growling noise
