Normal for it to have end play..You can move the axle in and out a bit..I don't know the exact measurement of movement. But it is normal............

^^^like he said. It's a C clip axle, so it's going to have some play, unlike a semi or full floater.

Is it in and out or side to side?
Side to side and your axle bearings are going out.
In and out, C-Clips

To the O.P don't worry about it. As stated above it's normal. 90% of straight axle car's and trucks are like this. It's very much normal. All of are t.b's do this.

You with out a doubt have a wheel bearing issue (hub replacement time)

its not up down or side to side its very much so in and out...
I would pull your caliper bracket off and hope your axle doesn't pull out. I had one of the the clutches behind the spider gear come apart and the c-clip fell out. The only thing that kept the axle in was the caliper bracket.
