I think it is balljoint related. I believe to check the lower you jack up the truck, by the frame, and then put a jack under the lower arm. Just lift the arm up a little but, and work the wheel to see if you have play. You have to push it pretty stoutly, and may hear some clunk as well as see some movement. Check your linkages, and the lower arms where the alignment adjusters are. Maybe something is just loose.

wheel bearings might have been out

Your alignment could also be out of spec.. the alignment cams on the lower arm push or pull the lower arm in and out, and as a result the top of the tire goes in and out too.. it can also be caused by suspension sag, the more it sags the more the bottom of the tire pushes out and the top pushes in, same result it needs to be realigned.. so you might check that.
