Some play in front axle normal or not?

I need to change my CV boots/rings....and before started I noticed that the axle has play on both ends...the diff and the wheel.

Is some play normal or not?

Thanks,

Brent

Re: Some play in front axle normal or not?

Had this same sort of question yesterday! Well I guess it depends on where exactly the play is but for me when I asked a tech about having some in-and-out play with the part of the CV axle that goes into the front differential he said that is normal.

If you had a video you could post up somehow that would help diagnosis. Or a picture with arrows showing where the play is and how much

Good suggestion. I'll post a quick vid to show what I mean.

Thanks!
