    Is 1/8" play on the axle bad :)

    Yikes! Checked the axle on the pass side today while I had it up doing the swaybar. The axle has a tone of play. Sounds like I'm driving over rumble strips when I make turns. Good thing my other axle is getting done! But, I won't autocross it tomorrow like this.
