How much axle end play is too much and how do you correct it


While installing new rear shocks found the pass side rear axle has about one sixteenth of inch end play.
Is this to much? How do you correct this?
That's pretty much normal. It varies depending on tolerances in the carrier and ring and pinion and how the carrier had to be shimmed to get the correct clearances.
Put a dial indicator on the axle flange. There's a good chance you don't have a full .0625" of slop.

...oh, and it's normal.
