I found the front inner Cv joint has big moving. Is everything okay here? I think its not ok. can it be broken the CV joint? Or maybe something broken in the front differential. Sorry for my english :).

That is in the front differential, mine did it too, can't remember what all that is messed up, I think it is just the seal and bearing.

Yes, something is definitely wrong. I'd pull the CV axle out and take a look. I think Rory is right, your seal is definitely toast, and likely the bearing behind it. Hopefully everything in the diff itself is ok.
