Front drive shaft play

I can rotate the front drive shaft ('95 D90 ST) by hand quite a bit; maybe 3/8"+. Rear shaft, not at all. Should I be concerned? What is the likely answer to why this is happening? Thanks, Vic

No concern. I assume you have the truck in park or the parking brake on which is locking the rear shaft. The play in the front diff and diff in the t-case have about that much play. Unless it is loose at the splines or at the u-joints on the driveshaft, it is completely fine and normal.
