Wouldn't do normally - you didn't over-extend the springs while fitting did you? Also check for flash on the moulding.

Just curious, it doesnt make a difference in anything, does it?

it does. the alums are weaker than the steel universals that's why it's placed in the front.

Front CVD's have to do WAY more work as the front wheels are constantly steering. Rear CVD's barely move at all...

Here is a link to Xray conversion chart. I can't verify the accuracy, but you will have to make that call!
Also, that's very common on the Tamiya servo savers because it's a two piece. To get rid of the slop separate the two pieces then put a piece of paper folded in half or a then piece of thin cardboard, Tamiya spare parts cardboard works good. You'll have to figure out how small you have to make it. Then squeeze it between the two parts where the top of the springs separate and the notches at the top. This will fill the space between the springs and the notches on the servo saver. It's a Mickey mouse way to do it but it works!
Just my 2$

thank you for the link and the tip regarding the servo slop.
btw i remember that on the "ta05 perfect guide" magazine were some photos of all the suspension mounts blocks with info and sizes about them.
any idea were i can find a list with all the blocks specifications?
