I was hitting some jumps with my hyper7 and I noticed one of my rear dog bones had a lot of play, so I figured my diff was broken so I took it out to look it over and to me it looks good but if I grab the one side and spin the other side it moves! Is that normal? I thought they should both more or when holding the one side the other shouldn't move. The gear teeth looked good and there were no metal pieces in the diff. Any ideas on where the problem is?

The differential action you describe is normal. Especially with thin oil or grease. You will feel more resistance when holding one wheel and spinning the other with a heavier oil.

Here is a good article for diff tuning:
