Default 35 spline alxe free play question

i was running strange 35 spline spool and axles, and just got from moser a new set of axles with the 5/8 studs. the play is sloppier than the original strange axles. i put a dial indicator on the stud and came up with .032 thousands of play. does any one know what is axceeptable. i just dont want to go by what mosher says.

Default moser

I agree, moser sucks!!!! I only buy strange axles!!! They are very sloppy and from my history, they are weaker than any other axle i have ever had even stock ford.

From what I understand Mosier parts vs Strange Parts are not interchangable.. Like using Mosier Axles in a strange spool ect.
Have not tried it but that is what I had been told at one time.
Have you talked to Strange about this? If it were me I would just to get their opinion.
