This is more of a 'please confirm' post than anything.
I'm quite sure that I have a wheel bearing issue. Either that or a loose hub nut. The issue is located on the right rear wheel of the car. I have checked all the suspension linkages. I have also checked the shock absorber when the car is on or off the jack stands. There is no play.
Though there are none of the sounds or vibrations associated with a rear wheel bearing issue, the wheel can be moved when the car is up in the air.
If you hold the wheel in the north/south position, then it can be tilted inwards and outwards. The brakes move along with it as well. If you hold the wheel in the east/west position, the wheel and brakes do not move.
Thus, I suspect a wheel bearing is bad. Is my diagnosis correct? Or would the loose hub nut make more sense? Or maybe both?

If there is no noise while driving, it has to be the suspension, I think. Mostly a hub bearing make noise, if it is worn.
You have to check the upper and lower arm, especialy the ball joint.
I have already renewed all the upper and lower arms on my Legend.
Thank you for the interesting insight. I've checked the boot on the balljoints, and they seem to be fine. Though, I haven't checked the condition of the ball joints themselves. I will take a look at them at a later day.
