Default Front wheel wobbling

If you guys remember I had previously posted about some problems with my steering. Yesterday after going through the entire steering and suspension system for he umpteenth time, the mechanic and I were lost. When I got home I jacked up the front and allowed the wheels to turn in 2nd gear whileI looked from underneath.I realised that the left front wheel was wobbling and the disc, caliper and everything was following the same wobbling motion. Wheel bearings were changed 3 weeks ago because they started growling. I asked the mechanic about it and he said that it sounds as though the "drive flange" is bad. ( thing that holds the wheel studs). Just wanted to know what you guys thought and get a second opinion.

Possibly the brake rotor and hub ("drive flange?") are not in good contact, that will make the rotor and wheel wobble. Take it apart to see if the hub itself wobbles, and check for rust or other foreign material on the face of the hub or the matching surface of the rotor.

It is not necessary to run the engine for such tests, just put it in neutral and turn the wheel by hand.
