Scotty, I just replaced the knuckle, tie rod end, lower ball joint, shock, wheel bearing, wheel hub and sway bar end link, after a collision on my 2014 Corolla. The wheel was crooked before, but now sits straight. There was a lot of play at 9 and 3 before, but now after doing all the work, there is a tiny bit of play all around the wheel (9 and 3 and 12 and 6). Is this normal after pressing in a new bearing? It was a timken bearing and a Toyota knuckle. The bearing spun freely and felt good once pressed in. Advice?

wheel bearings should have NO play at all, especially when just pressed in. Have a pro alignment guy check that first to make sure it's not something else than a bearing not pressed in right
