Cv axle play

Have front end rattle on bumps. Has new control arm. Newer strut assys which includes strut mount. Sway bar links and bushings are good. If I pull cv axle in/out I get a slight clunk sound. It’s pass side so inner to outer joint is about 12”. The inner pluge joint is held by support bracket as it is a 2 piece axle. Is any noise something to consider? Or is axle supposed to be silent?
I would say axle moves 1/16”? This is not radially. It is axially.
