    im running a 127.5 mil un72
    it feels as if the spindle is moving around and the drive side cranks are getting closer to the cups
    is there anyway to fix this?

    if there is play in the spindle then either the cups are loose in the frame or the bearings are dead. The bearings aren't serviceable/replaceable with shimano BBs. If the bearings ARE shot then you can't damage anything by continuing to use it, it will just have play and be rough. Kind of like an aggresive impotent life prisoner.

    take off the cranks and check that the cups are tight, failing that it might just be normal square taper cranks pushing onto taper action.
