I have the frnt hub assemblys off of my 82 4x4 to replace the bearings, seals and races.... So the end of the splined axel sticks through the Spindle, any one know how much play they should have with the hub assembly off? There seems to be about an 1/8th of play In and out. this sound correct? Any help would be great... and thanks to all who helped me find a 54mm socket.

Your good to go, the snap ring limits travel inwards. You will have to pull the axle with a bolt to get the snap back on and take up most of the play during reassembly.
