vdubn is on a distinguished road

I just checked my 1998 today, and it has the same issue. The hub/drum assembly on both sides moves in and out about 1/4", and I think the spec is like .10".

Is is the clip or the axle itself that is worn, or both? Someone mentioned there may be an adjustment in the 9.25 to take up some of this slop, can anyone confirm or refute this?
