C clips on an 8.25

Is it possible that the c-clips on the shafts of my 8.25 have been worn to the point where the shaft is no longer tight against the pin in the center? I get a 16th of an inch movement in and out which makes for an annoying sound when I go over bumps.

I thought the tire was not torqued down properly but i guess not cuz all of the lugs are tight . I can kick the tire with it on the ground and it makes the exact sound that I hear in the cab. The sound is the same sound as when you put the tire back on the hub after taking it off.

Maybe what I should ask is if there is a thicker c clip that I could use to tighten up the shafts?

There's always going to be movement in the shafts. If you tighten it up to the point of no movement, the shaft is going to be bottomed out against the cross pin in the differential, and will wear away at either the pin, the end of the axle shaft, or both, eventually causing slop again. Not to mention, you're potentially weakening the cross pin and/or shaft in the process of doing that. There's something else loose back there causing that sound.
