Front end noise-drive axle joint play

2005 GC 5.7LTD 130k miles

l have noise that i believe is coming from my front end, when driving slowly and breaking i can hear a clicking. when accelerating from a standstill i can hear a clicking, sound is louder when towing. coming from the front right. l also have a vibration and noise that is slowly getting worse while driving at highway speed, vibration is worse when accelerating and breaking than coasting.

When the jeep is jacked up and i move the wheel there is play in the front pass axle joint nearest the diff,looking across the gaiter from one side to the other there is about 1.5mm (more or less, hard to tell) of play/flex, is this normal?
