You may want to think about replacing Axles. Slip is never a good thing.

Absent any signs of any excessive clearance from the CV joints the slop you refer to could be just play due to normal clearances. All bearings need some clearance, and the CV joints/bearings are no different.

Also, if you are checking this with the car in the air and the suspension/drive train unloaded you'll find a lot more play than when the car is resting on its tires and the suspension is loaded.

Yea it was in the air. Seemed a little excessive but maybe not. No abnormal side to side movement and both sides are the same. Just curious if anyone else sees this. It's a 2016 Shaker 5.7 6m 20k miles.
