Don't forget the wheel bearings. A bad wheel bearing if bad enough will go up and down or left and right.

Any vibrations while driving? Tires wearing even and wearing the same on both front tires? How far is the travel? Do you hear any grinding or pops or snaps when wiggling the tire? Any positive answer is an indicator to the above responses. Normal wiggle is fine in a front wheel steering vehicle, but not much.
