Rebuilt turbo; still has play?

So, I rebuilt and installed a turbo on my truck after the stock had play. I got the rebuilt one on and it has slight side to side play immidiately but I dont know if it had it before install, so I thought I messed up somewhere. Runs fine however.

I took the stock one and finally got around to throwing a rebuild kit in it and it STILL has side to side play!

Is slight play normal? I cant think of anything I did wrong (not a very complicated rebuild) but what gives?

Thanks guys

They all will have some play side to side but should have none in and out. I can't remember the specs but there is an allowed tolerance of side to side play.

Ok, made me feel better. There is ZERO in and out but I worry none the less about the side to side.

If the compressor wheel digs into the housing, there's to much play!!!!

Video

OK got a vid of the compressor side play y'all should see how close it gets to the housing. I rebuilt this to sell it and I really don't want to screw someone down the road.
