Play in the Rear End

I had my leaky Pinion Seal in the rear replaced about a year ago and no problems since. I do notice a fair amount of play in the rear if I hit the gas and let go abruptly it feels like theres more axle play then I'd expect. Is that normal or are these rears usually tight. It's a basic laredo with a 3.7 liter

I also have the same issue with my 2005 WK Laredo 3.7L. When you let off and coast and get back on the gas there's a small... not clunk, not chugging, but like jerk in the drivetrain.

It would be good to hear from someone who knows if this is eventually going to cause damage...
