Jacked up rear axle and checking the wheel bearing holding the tire push in and pull out there is about an 1/8" or less play

If this was a c clip rear end then that would be all right, but the Ford 9 inch does not have c clip axles. Any in and out movement means that you probably have a bad bearing and it needs to be fixed right away. You need to check in to this some more and find out where the play is coming from.

9 in. Fords do not have clips. The axle/bearing is retained by the axle end plate and usually has little to no measureable end play.
