I tighten the spindle bolts down and i can push the cranks side to side a little bit. If you pushed on the spindle bolt on the left side it slides a little to the right then you can puch it back the the left side Also the sprocket is loose too, you can like push it a little side to side. Ive tried adding spacers and taking spacers off but i cant seem to get them tight :/ got any ideas?

put spacers in till the wiggle goes away try to make the gap distance from the fram to pedal boss equal distance

as in, they slide in the bb from side to side? Or is the bearing like ovalized and it wobbles in the bearing? Dude just take it to the local shop and have 'em look at it and give you their two cents, you don't have to ask them to fix it.

undo the pinch bolts tighten the spindle bolts then re-tighten the pinch bolts and that might work or more spacers
