Tie rods/checked steering guides and they were ok. I have 1"x0.25" pins ready to pin the shaft but I might look for something smaller. Quarter inch pins are rather still too beefy if an accident were to take place.

If you wobble the steering wheel back and forth in small increments while holding the shaft below the dash, it'll be obvious if you have play. The mbtim video he posted in my thread shows how to diagnose it. I ended up using a 3/16" roll pin (tension pin) and it turned out great and is thin enough that I feel it would break off in a collision.

It's a quick easy fix, so I'd do that first. If that doesn't fix your play I'd definitely look at your bushings and swap those guys out.
