Bad front wheel bearing.

1999 f250 4x4, crewcab, manual hubs, 2-wheel ABS
manufacture date 1/99 (which i think means i have late 99' motor and tranny setup with early 99' running gear, right?)

So i noticed that my truck was pulling to the driverside when braking. so i jacked it up and the wheel has at least 1/2" play up/down and im sure its the wheel bearing assembly. im going to do the update to 2000 year wheel bearing assembly and rotor on this side but i also have a leeking pinion seal and i would also like to change the seal on the end of the axle tube on this side as well. Can some one list all the seals i should sevice while im in there. i thought about doing the u-joint as well. as for the pinion seal can i change this without removing the pinion and is there anything special about removal and install?

Check the other side. My money is on the break caliper float pins being seized up.

When you say "up and down" do you mean in and out?

Isn't excessive wheel play indicative of bad ball joints? I could be wrong, just throwing it out there.
