No offense, but I don't think one here can help you. It could be any of those things, except the front axle, which a rear-wheel drive car does not have. Could also be ball joints, driveshaft flex-joints, etc. It really cannot be diagnosed on the Internet.

You either need to get under the car and jack it up and check out the suspension and wiggle the tires. Or, if you can't do that, take it to a shop, like a tire/alignment shop.

wheel bearing, tie rod end.?

there is a play when you wiggle the tire. both ways. up and down and side to side.

If there is play like you state, then you probably have worn control arm bushings. I would also check the tie rod ends, steering damper, and idler arm bushings.
