the way you checked your balljoints is the way I do it too. It'll show you play where otherwise you might not feel anything up or down.
Have someone else pry up on the wheel while you actually look at the joints, you'll be able to see which ones move, any obvious movement and your joints are bad.
Also check your steering, with the wheels on the ground and the vehicle off (steering wheel unlocked) have someone gently shake the wheel back an forth so the tires are just barely scrubbing the ground. look for any looseness in your tierods, draglink or track bar this way.
