Normal T-Case mount movement

So getting under my 2000 Laredo I can grab the rear driveshaft at the transfer case and move the whole tarnsfer case/transmission assembly side to side about an inch and a half to two inches. It does come back to center on its own, mount seems to have springy rubber type resistance, and I can tell there is still rubber in there but is this amount of side to side play of the transfer case mount normal? The service manual isn't very helpful (or I haven't found the right paragraph) as far as amount of normal mount movement or play.

Anyone?............ I was hoping this would be an easy one. I'll probably end up buying a new mount, it just doesn't seem right to be able to move it back and forth that much.

Are you moving the DS?

or the TC?


I'm pretty sure when you yank around on the DS it should hold fast....

There is no slack at the slip yoke, the driveshaft is just the most convenient spot to yank the transfer case back and forth. I'll get back under it tomorrow and see if I can tell if the rubber is all cracked or chewed up.
