Wheel Vibrations

Hey guys i'm new to this forum so i don't knwo if this was ever talked about earlier. So my front drivers side wheel has some loose to it. When i lift the car up and move it up and down to check and see if the wheel bearing is worn it doesn't move one bit, also dosen't move to the side. I have gotten a wheel allignment also. WHen the car is on the ground and level if i push hard or kick on the wheel at the top it moves, very little but it dose. THe other side doesn't do this at all. I looked under the car and it seems that the shock strut connected to the knuckle and the driveshaft move with it. This is a problem at speeds above 65 mph is when i feel it or when i have the wheel turned to go with the road. There is almost a vibration that's steady in the steering wheel, as if it had a beat to it. This gets very annoying!!!! I was told it shoudl be the bearing in the hub but like i said earlier it doesn't wooble at all when it's in the air. So i don't knwo what this. If you guys could help out. Thanks. One more thing. My clutch pedal has no resistence to it. It's barly harder to push than my gas pedal, it's so weak. WHat coudl this be from, it still works great it's just so soft . ??
