Rear drive line play

I have a 2005 Rubicon with a 2 1/2” suspension lift. My wife was driving to work yesterday morning and says when she took off from a stop sign she said it felt like someone bumped Into her. She looked back but no one was there.
I was underneath today checking out driveshaft u-joints and all was tight. One thing I did notice was some play in the slip yoke side to side movement in the splines. Is that shaft ready to go? Stock shaft, non greasable.

My 06 LJ did something similar and greasing the slip yoke spines resolved the issue. That was about 20k miles ago and no issues.
