yeah these hub assemblies have to go through what I like to call... an "act of god" fail for it to actually feel loose, usually there will be a bearing squeak.
I replaced mine when I first got the jeep because it sounded iffy to me, and the old one came out in 3 pieces... no weird movements on the wheel at all
one word of advice... if you are going to take the time to do a wheel bearing, do the u-joint as well.
