my abs brake light came on so i checked my brakes and everything is good rotor and pad, etc.. nothing is on the sensor or rubbing anything. well when i went to put my tire back on my passenger side ive noticed that when i pushed my tire at the top and bottom it moved an awful lot. and when i did the drive side it didn't move at all so i know there is a problem with the passenger side wheel. so that is normally caused by a wheel bearing right? thanks in advance.

You need either a wheel bearing or a balljoint. You'll need to see exactly where the motion is coming from to tell the difference. My guess is a wheel bearing, since it is affecting ABS (but that MIGHT be a coincidence -- multiple faults do happen).

Your steering will be light years better once this is fixed.

And consider this to be a safety critical repair. Not only is your steering loose, but the worst case is that the wheel comes off.
