Is it a ball bearing center housing or journal bearing? Makes a big differance.
A journal bearing center housing has to have a little bit of sideways play for the journal bearings inner and outer diameter oil clearances and a ball bearing center housing shouldn't have noticable play or just a very tiny bit.

You could take a video of the axial play you're talking about and ask Chris at Turbokraft what he thinks. Nobody can make a really good judgement without seeing the movement.
If it's journal bearing, working good, and not blowing any smoke or leaking oil I'd guess you could just leave it as is and enjoy the car.
