Default 98 civic hx wheel bearing issue

What's up honda tech? I just changed out my wheel bearing and spindle on my car due to the old one getting bad and banged out the old and pressed in the new one. Installed it on the car and it seems that it's got to much play. It's actually alot worse now than what it was before . It's almost as if the axle splines ain't sliding all the way to the end of the spindle splines? Any ideas?

Thanks for your input guys. I pressed in the new bearing but I believe I got a defected bearing . I bought another new bearing and pressed it in and all is good.
