These turbo's are fine, and these are how they usually look when we check the turbo seals.

For future reference side to side play in the shaft is also normal as long as it doesnt hit the housing, we have some people freak when they move a little. True shaft play is an in and out movement of the compressor wheel. This is a sign the thrust portion bearing is shot.
