Jack up the front, get a firm grip on the passenger wheel and see if there's much play.
Ok, so there's no play in the wheel when I grab the wheel at 12 and 6 and wiggle it. I do hear a strange creaking/squeaking coming from the rear of the car when I go over speed bumps or drive into my garage up a 4 inch step up. I guess that noise could indicate worn suspension parts but the noise is only from the rear of the car.

To pnutbutta:

I do check tire pressure every time I fill up the car so I don't think that's an issue.

Uncle Scotty:

So I would just ask the dealership to set the toe to 0 on the passenger side wheels only?

I guess I should have them check for any damage to suspension parts on that side while I'm at it. I have a feeling if I ask the dealership to look for damage, they'll find some.
