When on axle stands with the wheels clear of the ground so they run free, is it normal to have some play in and out ie towards & away from the car? Huh

Yes.  There is a spec for axle endplay that you check with a dial indicator when you replace your axles.

Is there a cover on the rear of the axle housing or is it one piece and you remove the differential assembly from the front of the housing?

If it is a 8 3/4, with the locking nut, on the right axle.   Make sure it has the locking pin, that keeps the nut from moving, once the end play is set.   It mounts to one of the bolts.

if it has a 9 1/4 diff the end play can be a lot more as the style of axle brg doesn`t limit side travel like the tapered roller used in the 8 3/4
