After replacing the wheel bearing, ball joints and tie rod end, I still have 1 to 2 degrees of play in my right front wheel when I grab it at 12 & 6 and 3 & 9. I'm sure everything's torqued and shimmed properly. I don't suspect the steering rack as I have no play in the steering wheel and the left front wheel is fine. There's not much left upstream to consider other than the pot joint or CVJ, but I'm not getting any click-click sounds when I turn. Worn spline(s) maybe? [video]
I wouldn't bother except I think it's causing some moderate torque steer in an otherwise straight steering car. It pulls right when I accelerate and left when I decelerate, which I think is consistent with a floppy left wheel; the wheel's going toe-in under acceleration and toe-out when I lift the throttle. Any ideas?
