That motion is the main reason I'm not a fan of hitch receiver cargo racks. There's a lot of extra space around a ball mount to allow it to slide easily and it allows a lot of twisting motion in the receiver tube (not an issue when towing)
Some racks I've seen have a captured nut inside the mount tube and you secure it with a bolt instead of a pin. This holds the mount tube securely to one side of the receiver tube, minimizing rotation.
If yours doesn't have this feature I'd look to add it.
