Clunking axle (left side)

My 300sd axle clunks quite loudly while making sharp turns. While investigating what could cause it, i gave the left side axle shaft a tug while up on jacks.
The axle shaft had 1-2 inches of play in either direction. Is this normal? i thought there was some sort of c clip or retainer that limited side to side motion?
