Do you have the crank out? If so, hold the rod from the small end, the crank half's hanging. Then womp (hit, strike, or pound) the top of your hand with the other hand. If you feel a clunk (movement) then the big end bearing is bad. Side to side movement is OK, but check your manual for clearance.
I wouldn't buy a $25 piston either unless it's a discounted name brand.
