8.25 shake wheel back and forth question!

buddy has a 96 xj lifted 6 inches with 33s, d30 and 8.25, if i hold the top of the tire and use quite a bit of muscle it moves very little to the point where it makes a clunk. Is it rear axle bearings or does it do this cause its a c-clip?

It should move out and in a small amount due to the c-clips. It should not move up and down though, that would indicate bad bearings.

Yes, the clunk when pulling on it is normal.
