S2R1k: Lateral play in shock rocker arm

Hey guys, I did a shock swap recently and noticed this lateral play in the rocker arm: https://giphy.com/gifs/SVlk4kYjBfjj1aV3AG

That was filmed with the rear suspension suspended so there was no weight on it. The manual says to check for play around the axis that it rotates on to see if the bearings are worn and it doesn't have any but it doesn't mention anything about side to side movement. Is this cause for concern?

Mine same thing, it doesn't seem to behave weird when I'm riding or weight is loaded on it.

It's normal. There is nothing restricting the rocker from moving along the pivot pin.
