Wiggle as in you are able to rotate it a little bit?

If so, this is normal. The shock needs some degree of play so that it runs smoothly through the range of travel. If it was completely rigid the suspension would bind.
I noticed the exact same thing the other day, after having felt a 'wiggle' while riding on the highway. Apparently the play is normal, per both my dealer and Jarel.
oh ok thanks for the reply. i was getting nervous that the rear shock was gonna fall off when i was riding. hahahha
