    Not necessarilly. If there is excessive lateral play or fore/aft play, then it's potentially bad.

    I'd be more concerned if you couldn't spin the shaft by hand...

    Both axial and transaxial (lateral) play are undesireable, but trans-axial play can be the most damaging if the moment is too great.
