I got a fabrication shop to redo the rear body mounts for 225.00. I didn't think it was to bad of a price. I also replaced the ball joints and tie rod ends. The steering still seems loose, But I have the steering box tightened all the way down. It still has some play in it. so I dunno what to do about that besides buy one.

**UPDATE*** I finally got the rear end welded up and finished. It is so much better. I just bought a flow master 40 for it. My muffler started to drag not to long ago. I had the ball joints replaced and tie rod ends. The steering got better since i replaced it. But there is still alot of play in the steering wheel.
