Install RPM ball cups on ALL of the steering rods. It won't get rid of all of the slop but they do help.

It will help a little bit if you crank the servo saver post all the way up. You can remove a bit more slop if you pop off all the ball cups in the steering linkage and put a small piece of plastic bag over each of the balls then pop the cups back on and then remove any excess plastic hanging out of the cups.

The best way to remove slop though is to buy a different car.

I use shims to remove play, if the play is between the arms and the steering blocks. You want some play.
