190E front wheel vibration

After changing the brakes and rotors on my 190E, it has developed a intermittant vibration in the front left. It's getting worse. When this began I checked for excessive play in the hub, none apparent. With the wheel installed there is a slight amount of play when the vehicle is raised by tugging on the outer wheel. I'm suspicious of the ball joints, Since these appear to be a pain to change I don't want to throw parts at it. How would I know if they are going south? Any other suggestions? The vibration is most apparrent when coasting in straights, and once it starts it tends to amplify until either brake or accelerate.
Thanks in advance.
