Need some advice on how to fix this (new to the whole freecoaster thing)

My rear wheel has some play (I can rock it slightly side to side) and I can see that it's the freecoaster hub doing this. Is this a normal thing? What can I do to fix it?

I don't know specific part names or anything but it looks like the hub is sliding side to side very slightly.

Tighten them but make sure the wheel has the smallest amount of play you can get. You don't want to crush the bearings or make the wheel slow.

As mentioned don’t overtighten them , your wheel should be able to spin 100% without resistance and play . If you crank it down , it’ll slow down your hub and make it 1000x easier to fuck your bearings .
