I checked mine the other day while putting on snows and whereas I have a
very definate clunk, I could not really discern any free play, although
there was plenty of lateral movement available.  Seemed the same for both
sides, but clunk is only on one side.

down and side to side
    Well, part of the reason for the recall is that they are bad even
