Rear shock movement ?

Never adjusted the shock, so not noticed it before...
If you grap the shock resovoir, is it supposed to move left to right in relation to the bike. I guess the whole shock is moving on its rubber mount ?

Cheers

Yep, most of them do that. Also, up and down.

It's definitely NOT rubber-mounted, but there is some side to side play allowed by the swivel joints.
