Loose Trail Gear Creeper Flanges

I brought a set of TG drive flanges for the front of my fj40 before xmas and ended up sending them back for a credit, all the dowels were loose you could hold the flange up and see light all around the dowel holes and the splines were way too loose on the birfs, I compared them to a few spare free wheeling hubs I had lying around and there was a significant difference in the amount of play on the spline. I found a guy with some old stock original longfield flanges and brought them the difference was night and day. Is this normal for TG flanges or did I get part or a bad batch?
