Default Help me please

The other day i was on the highway coming home and my truck developed a front end noise. when i turned the wheel to the left the noise went away. its sort of a whomp whomp noise i guess thats how id spell it. i can feel it through my drivers side floor board. i jacked the truck up and and i could shake the drivers wheel around so i figured it must be the wheel bearing. after painstakingly beating the hell out of the hub assembly to get it removed i put the new one back on. there is no more play in the wheel but the noise is still there!!!!!!!!!!!

any ideas??????/
