Front Axle Passenger side U-Joint Question

How much play would worry you guys? Just nosing around the rig yesterday, I decided to pull on the front axle u-joints. The drivers side is good-n-tight, but the passenger side will "click" when I give it a twist. For those who know: is this something that should get instant attention, or is this something that could stand to be left for a while? Not wheelin' full time as yet, but I am thinking of throwing in a lunchbox when the wife isn't looking...

No problem at all, unless it breaks and takes out the seal or breaks the ears off the outer or inner shaft. Spend the $20 and take the hour to get it done.

Agreed, if you've got it out already then just throw a new one in. Can't hurt

Tell the wife the u joint is worn out BECAUSE there is no locker in there.
Replace the joint, you do not want the collateral damage if it goes under a load.

Your limited slip differential sucks.
