Front Axle Questions, Misc Fluid Questions

Hey guys, I was under the truck the other day and decided to for some reason wiggle the front axles up and down, On the drivers side I get about 7/16 to MAYBE a 1/2" vertical movement, and the passenger side has 3/8" to 7/16" vertical movement. IS this normal or not? 4x4 works fine, no binding, chattering, popping etc.. no unusual wear.

Other questions.

In your all opinions, whats the best fluids for the
ZF6 / Any additive?
Front Diff / Any additive?
Rear Diff / Any additive?


Thanks again guys,
Tony
