No, should be a nice slip fit, not sure what wears but should pull it out and look.

I e replaced the cv shaft already. It was a pain to get the cv out the "connecting pin" came out with the old one I put it back In just fine didn't want to come back out afterwards.. Is this a bearing issue??? Or something else?

Yep, everything there should run true with no play. Like checking a wheel bearing, no play smooth & true.

I'll give replacing the bearings a shot thanks for the help

Now a differential is precisely assembled with clearance specs. and torque specs. Investigate this matter before you tear into it.

Should be tight, splines where stub shaft and axle meet rust and strip out. Replace axle, stub shaft and axle seal. Inspect bearings while its apart.
