is it bad to drive around when (i believe) my rear axle bearings are worn? by that i mean when i lift the rear end up, i can pull the wheel towards me in and out (as opposed to front to back) just a tad...very little. how much axle play is there supposed to be?

there is also a noticable clunking sound when i give it a quick gas/brake in reverse...

any input here?

The axle play is normal if it’s a tiny bit. As for the clunking how are your bushings?
