I just got my Uzzi VPX with the 5th Element yesterday. I noticed today that the spacers around axles that hold the shock in place are really loose. The spacers roll around the axle quite freely and the other spacer on the rear actually has 1-2mm sideway play. ie. I can move it left and right 1-2mm on the axle.

Is this "normal"?

It is designed that way for slight misalignment in the frame manufacturing process to eliminate shock binding.

As long at the bolt that holds the pin in place is tight, and the shock is not hitting anything your are good as gold.
