A defective front wheel bearing can be felt by hand. Jack the tire off the ground and then w/o a great deal force rock the wheel L and R and then Up and Down.
If the bearing is defective you will be able to feel some play that is not the suspension. We are talking in thousandths of an inch play.
Generally wheel bearing play can be discerned from loose suspension components.
