Axle shaft U-Joint

I have a set of fairly new chromoly shafts for Dana 30. One of the u-joints have about 1/16" play between caps. U-joints are fairly new. Could this be caused by the caps not being fully pressed into the shaft? I'd hate to think that u-joints could go bad this quickly

Pulled the shaft, tapped on the caps a little, problem solved. Apparently they weren't pressed on properly at the factory.

make sure all the clips are in and seated in the grooves, if not this will happen again.
