That sounds like your rear axle bearings are shot.

rear lateral bar and trailing arm bushings cause this side to side movement problem, if the tire has play up and down movement it most likely would be the knee bushing or lower Ball Joint there is no rear axle on the amanti, if it was the hub bearing there would be a noticeable grinding with movement when turning the tire.
