Creaking on turns mystery SOLVED

The left front hub is loose. I had the bearings replaced in February, but the hub either got damaged then or the non-OEM bearings did something bad to the hub over the last few months.
The whole wheel wobbles side-to-side about 3 or 4 inches! That's where the noise is coming from. (worse thing is I didn't notice the wobbly wheel until the dealer showed me!)
Gonna let the Subaru stealership do the work of replacing the whole shibang which is gonna run me $560.

I had a good independent mechanic replace the bearing the first time ($217), and I find it hard to believe he could have screwed up so badly.
Yeah, the price the stealership quoted me included a zillion parts and a new hub. And seeing how much I can wobble that front wheel has me so scared that I'm willing to pay it!
