Wheel bearing failure now!!!!! Ugh!

So after a debacle with firestone, then my alternator, now I was airing up my tires and I kick each tire at top to check for anything loose. And what would you know! Right wheel wobble. WTF! So go to firestone as they just replaced my ball joint 2 weeka ago and now this!? Oh boy am I pissed. Seems like its something they forgot to tightenc but tech is calling out a bad wheel bearing, is this something I can harass them to replace or pay for 1/2? If they faile to repair which brand should I buy of hub, timken or moog/national. I know both companies are highly recommend, im leaning twords timken.

Re: Wheel bearing failure now!!!!! Ugh!

I would first jack it up and confirm that the wheel bearing is the culprit. It would be strange that they didnt see anything strange two weeks ago, when they changed the balljoints.
