I jack up the front and grab the cv axle and see some movement here! Is it something wrong or normal?? 96 sidekick sport 1.8.

Depends on how much axial movement. The CV stub is held in the side diff gear by a spring ring, by design there is some mm's play there. if it's a lot, then sounds like spring ring failed.
Thanks. I feel not too much! On the driver side no movement at all.
Somebody told me that the passenger side if they have the play of 1/8 or 1/2 inch they are normal! Thanks you for your time to reply.
There's a HUGE difference between 1/8 inch and 1/2 inch - 1/8 inch I wouldn't worry about it, 1/2 inch I would certainly be concerned.
Although I have not measured the play. However what I feel there is a little bit of wiggle in and out, not up and down at all!!
