'86 300E Rear Axle Loud Grinding


My 86 300E has developed a loud rotational grinding sound from the passenger side rear. Braking and especially on or off the power does change the sound. Jacked it up and have about a centimeter of play laterally, in and out, toward the center of the car. (Drivers side has no noise or play.) Do I need to tighten something or is something getting toasted and in need of replacement?

Thanks, David
