Turns out the wheel bearing isn't the only problem. Still sways and snaps loose.

Glancing back it looks like this thread addresses the likely causes.

Now that you've got the emergency of a bad wheel bearing out of the way looking at the lower link bushings would be next on my list.

Bounce & sway would be the description for bad shocks, if it's loose feeling in a turn with maybe some wander in a straight line that would match most bushing descriptions.

Luck finding your fault.
