Final Drive Check Question

I did a ton of reading and searching and I have a question I didn't find a specific answer to, or maybe I just missed it (sorry). I don't want to beat the FD check to death but:

I am looking at an 02 1150GSA and the FD is solid when checking at 3 and 9, but there is slight play at 6 and 12. Since the play is only noticeable at 6 and 12 would this likely be an indicator of a pivot bearing issue vs the FD drive bearing?

thanks everyone,

Have someone hold the brake. If you still have play it is your pivot bearings. If not it is your FD bearings.

Thanks Jim, will do that.

It's not a lot of play and it's solid at 3 and 6 so maybe just an indicator its just starting to go. Will try the brake check.
