Wheel bearing slop?

Suspension

Vehicle Information: Year: 1979; Body Type: Targa;

GreetingsLast fall my front end became rather sloppy. Sounds like I need a bib. Wanders, catches the crown of the road, steers off of imperfections. I can feel resistance on the road through the steering on curves and corners. Equals driving a 71 Ford F100!I felt some slop in the front wheel bearings so replaced one side. It made no difference. So, I held off on the other side and figured I needed to replace the strut inserts. Got a new set of Bilsteins but it's still the same. Is this small amount of slop normal? Did I just knock it out of alignment on a pothole? I just want my old car back?By the way, it has 160k + mis, new front tires and very recent turbo tie rods.Sincere Thanks
