Default 1991 5.0 Front Wheel play?

Looking for some advice...my 91 5.0 has some play in the front wheels when she is jacked up and the wheels are in the air. There's not a lot, but definitively noticeable. I'm about to change my front rotors and pads, so I figure I might as well tackle this problems while I'm working on the brakes.

Am I looking at the Inner and Outer bearing's as the culprit? Anything else that is common to cause this issue that I should know about like possibly the Spindles themselves?

Any suggestions/advice is greatly appreciated.

Bearings, ball joints, tie rods, rack bushings, control arm bushings... list goes on. All those can cause play. Need to determine whats moving.

check the wheel bearings, if just loose, tighten them, but not a bad idea to pull and inspect and then clean and repack.
