Hi guys,
My son and I noticed his 2004 SVT has been leaking what seemed to be oil.
When we replaced the dog bone tranny mount, we noticed the driver side axle seal has been leaking.
In cleaning the leak, I also noticed that the axle has some play, not in and out but around. Not much, it barely moves, but it is noticeable. I am not sure if this is normal or not.
Is this just a matter of replacing the seal or is there a bushing/bearing behind the seal that would also need to be replaced?
Thanks for your help in advance!

Actually, more than a little play of that type can be easily acceptable, you are feeling the stackup of several parts there and all their clearances add up together.
