It's normal to have a small bit of play. You most likely need a seal only.

I'm having difficulty copying and pasting on this old POS iPad. Look up my thread titled "Opened my front differential today".
If you would please paste it here, thank you.

I had a leaking front diff at about 35k miles, dealership replaced he whole diff even though it was only the seal. They told me once the seal goes bad, others will do the same failry quickly as there is usually some type of damage that caused the seal to leak.

Sorry, I typed it wrong.

It has to come out. I think you can do the seal with it in, but I never tried that.
