front drive shaft play?

ive never had this issue before tonight, i put my jeep in 4 wheel drive, engage the posi and when i take off if its icy it seems that the back tires spin for a second then the front tires start, and when the front starts i hear a loud thunk and you can feel it, i got under it and with both the t case and posi engaged i can turn the front drive shaft about 5 degrees. is this normal? ive never had this before
