Wheel hub bearings?

    Did about 150 miles with the truck today, was making some strange noises, I figure its a wheel bearing.
    Usually when I have had a hub go bad in my other vehicles, there is a roaring sound or the ABS light comes on etc. Today, none of that but it made a clunky, grindy sound every few miles, just for a second or two. When I got home, I jacked it up and there is play in the hub, so I figure thats where the noise was coming from. Never had one sound like this before.....Any comments?...Anyone had this happen this way to them?

    I know that on the newer trucks like 02-09 GM went Cheap AGAIN!! and went to China for the bearings and a lot of them had to be replaced.. I got both of mine done under Warr before 100K
