    I haven't changed an axle shaft so I don't have a sense of how snug it should be in the transmission.I would suggest asking someone who has done a few for his opinion.
    I would think that the car would have been leaking from that area if the seal was defective.
    Sloppiness of the shaft suggests a worn transaxle bearing in my mind.
