Default ??Factory team Rc8t cvd's??

Hi everyone
I just bought a lightly used factory team rc8t. I noticed with the cv's they all seem to move up and Down, and right to left in the cup a bit, almost like the ball part is too small for the cup? All of the cv's do it, fronts,rears and centres. Is this normal? i just want to know if this is how they are meant to be or not?? Please let me know asap. Thanks alot for your help
Matt

Yes they all will have some movement from the cvd. If you pull them out and you see that the pins are worn, than I would just get rebuild kits for them.

yeah thanks, i asked the guy i bought it from and he has a brand new one there and it moves in the cup. he said if they were tight they would cause friction and wear the cv. thanks
