89 chev 1500 P/U pitman arm

My Son-inlaw has this trk and it has 110k mi. The pitman arm knuckle, with eng off and rocking steering wheel back and forth, has approx 1/16" play. Is this an acceptable limit?
If not acceptable, how difficult is this arm to replace?

best way to check is front wheels raised and have some one move the tire side to side just enough to take up play if you feal play than what ever the part causing movment should be replaced if it is pitman than its not that bad of a job but a special puller is needed
