The driveshaft will have some slack when you turn it back and forth when the 4x4 is not engaged and the front hubs have not locked in. The 1/8 turn may be normal. If you have engagement problems for the front end or transfer case then contact a local mechanic to inspect and diagnose the problem for you.
