Some travel in my wheel

While my Jeep was jacked up over the weekend locked in 4x4 (one wheel off the ground doing an hub replacement) I noticed some travel turning the wheel forward and backward. Also when driving I feel a thud underneath when stopping and starting (as if there was a heavy ball rolling around in the hatch feel, no there isn't a ball back there wise guys). Any ideas?????Thanks

did you check the control arm bushings?

Are you talking about a front wheel or a back wheel? If back wheel, check the a-arm ball joint.
