Oh and I measured the end float while I was at it, 0.6 mm, seems a lot more when you can see the shaft move out and feel it clunk.

Yep, that`s the thing, you can see & feel it move but it`s difficult to quantify: a mm or 2 didn`t seem too far out. It IS odd but I assume Ford had a reason and they seem to last reasonably well so who are we to argue? Thanks for measuring it though.
