did you install it correctly? there should be two metal c-clip springs installed with it. If installed correctly there should be no play.

If you use the High Torque Servo Saver, the C springs require replacement after some usage. Alternatively, when they become "loose", i.e., not centering correctly, you can remove them and use pliers to clamp the C springs close and reinstall again. But eventually they will lose tension and need replacement.

You should have two bright springs and a black one. Get the first bright spring (doesn't matter which), and then the second bright spring over it, then slide the black spring over the two bright springs.
