Symptoms of excessive hub bearing play?

I had a squeel sound coming from the right front. It sounded like a warning tab on the brakes rubbing the rotor. I purchased some new pads to put on and when I jacked up my truck I saw the wheel / tire move in quite a bit. I grabbed the top and bottom of the tire and I could move it about a quarter inch each way, cheked driver side and almost as much movement. I replaced both hub assemblies and there is absolutley no movement. I have 80K miles on my 4 X 2.

minor vibrations, when turning at about 30mph turn the wheel back and forth and if you feel the front kinda pop or bump something that dosent feel right might suspect it, and...... jack the truck up and grab the tire try to move it all ways, if you feel it move, then you know!
