984wdram is on a distinguished road
Default rear axle bearing/seal

my truck is making some kind of knocking sound from the right rear tire. i jacked it up, and i can move the whole axle in and out about a quarter to a half inch. it will also move left and right. would this be the rear axle bearing or the seal? i kinda feel like i need to get this fixed as fast as possible.

If it moves in and out, I believe it is in the carrier, I had a c-clip go bad and the whole axle came out of the tube on an older truck I had, and not a bad idea to just replace everything with new since the axle will be out.
