was installing new drive axle " left side" where it slides into tranaxle it seems to have excess side to side and up and down play is this normal?

Hi sophie1460, Welcome to 2carpros and TY for the donation

Make sure its the correct type axle

Installation
To install, reverse removal procedure. Before installing axle shafts, install NEW snap ring on end of left axle shaft. Coat axle shaft seals in transaxle with grease. Coat axle shaft splines and sliding surfaces with gear oil (M/T models) or Dexron-II (A/T models). Position snap ring on end of left axle shaft with opening facing downward.
Install left axle shaft by lightly tapping axle shaft into transaxle. Ensure left axle shaft will move inward and outward approximately .079-.120" (2.00-3.00 mm) and cannot be pulled from transaxle.
When installing right axle shaft, install NEW snap ring and NEW axle shaft bearing bolt. Tighten axle shaft bearing bolt to specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS . To install remaining components, reverse removal procedure. Tighten bolts/nuts to specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS . On A/T models, fill transaxle with Dexron-II. On M/T models, fill transaxle with 75W-90 gear oil with API GL-3, GL-4 or GL-5 rating.
