Did some research and it seems the play is normal. Aparently the axles will shift out when driving and move away from the pinion shaft. It still doesn't seem right though, you'd think it would still shift in while turning the wheel or if on an incline sideways. And to top it off, I still don't know where the humming is coming from or why it pulls to the right.
The noise gets loud between 50-65mph, it doesn't shake, just sort of hums or whines. Replaced the pass side wheel bearing and axle joint in the front and it still pulls to the right and makes the noise. Also it's got a new caliper rotor pads and rubber brake line, and I greased the tie-rod and upper ball joint (lower did not have fitting) while I was in there.
Should've known it'd be a headache for 400bucks.
