Rear drivers side tire wobble

Hi, I am new to owning a Jeep. I am trying to do all of the work on it myself as well. I have a back and forth wobble on the drivers rear side. I replaced the bearings and in the process noticed that there was play in the axle, in and out movement. Afterwards, I still have a wobble and now the other rear side feels like it is going to fall off all of a sudden. There is a lot of give when accelerating and up and down movement when driving on the passengers rear side now.
I only changed the drivers side bearings. I did not do an alignment, so maybe that is part of the problem? I have no clue. It is now sitting in a garage until it I can solve what's wrong with and feel safe driving it.
I assume I now need to replace the axle on the drivers side, and maybe the bearings on the other? Not sure. I was looking up axles on rock auto and could not figure out which one was the right one.
Any ideas? I appreciate the help.
