metal stud wall concerns

tater_bombJanuary 10, 2007

Hi All. I've installed 2 1/2" metal studs around the perimeter of my basement and was hoping the unstable feel would go away after my drywall was attached. The drywall is now attached and if I put some wieght into a wall it still has some give to it. Should I be worried about drywall joints cracking with this movement?

Thank you!
