I noticed a while back I have some slop fore and aft on the 106 front axle. Should I care about this and if so could I just insert a washer to take up the excess room in the frame slot for the axle?

Yes, I'd just shim it with a washer.  That slop translates to more steering play.

Better to repair now before it gets excessive.

Get rid of the pin that it came with.  Get a 3/4" grade 8 bolt with a nylock nut and draw it down till the slop is taken up.  Problem solved!  I have done this to my 100 and my 107.  The 100 has had it on for 6 years now and is as tight as the day I did it.  I also center drill the bolt and put a grease zerk in the end to grease the axle.  Some have a zerk on the axle pivot and are already greasable.  Hope this helps.
