I have a left front wheel that has a lot of slack in it. It appears that the hub is moving around inside the housing. I tried to tighten the nut on the axle and that help a little but didnt solve the problem. Does that mean that I need to replace the bearing? If so , is there anything complicated about replacing it? Thanks for your help.

Sounds like a bearing to me too. It is fairly simple to change them. Remove the caliper,take the large nut off the axle, remove the nut on the bottom of the strut that does through the A-arm, pull the strut out enough to get the axle out of it. There is a retaining clip that holds the bearings inside of the strut that has to be removed, you can then tap the bearings out. To be completely proper, loosen the two bolts that pinch the aluminum strut housing to the shock, remove the bolt going through the tie-rod end. Then you can take the strut housing to a press so you do'nt have to hammer the bearings in.
