    If you are sure the bearing has play in it... replace the hub.
    The bearings are included with the hub.
    I would also recommend replacing the pads while you have it apart...

    .......... and make sure the play is not the tie rod end - if worn/loose they will rattle when the tire is rocked at 3 and 9. Bearings usually rattle at 12 and 6.

    I just found out that the knowing noise is from the left control arm that both the front and rear bushings ate bad and is moving back and forth every time I brake.

    The only way I know to check the bearing play is by jacking up the Caddy and turning the wheel by hand. I mean you should not feel any roughness or play while turning the wheel by hand. On the other hand there could other contributing causes such as loose (or play in) tie rod ends.
