Default wobbleing lesabre

I've got a 200 buick lesabre that has some wobbleing in the front tire so I jacked it up and shook it side to side and up and down the wheel bearing was bad so I replaced it. but now it is still wobbleing during acceleration and making a clunking noise when I let my foot off the brake...everything seems tight in the wheel any suggestions?

Sounds like you have a CV joint going bad

control arm bushings are pretty common, have someone watch while you accelerate and stop quick and see if the wheel looks like its moving back and forth in the wheel well. from a safe distance back obviously

Tires worn? Bad belt or scalloped tire could cause the wobble....

Clunk? CV joints tend to make noise during turns or acceleration....

If the noise is there only when braking, check engine mounts, and suspension and brake components .....
