Your rear end slop can come from two places.

1. A-arm: shim with 1/8" shims (grab a bag of electric motor metalic shims) and shim your arms, between them and the bracket arm.
2. Pillowballs: Tighten the 5mm allen screws that hold the pillowballs on the upright, to do this correctly, disconnect the shock and try to tighten in very small increments, suspension travel should be SMOOTH and don't bind with anything.

i suffer the same thing in the rear of my car.
This is caused by the rear outdrive and the rear upright bearings which is not perfectly fit..

I'm taking a break from the construction of my MTX3. I'm up to the part where I have to assemble the shocks and I must say that so far, I'm very impressed with this kit. Even the brake cam is mounted on bearings Well of course you all know that but hey, I'm so happy with this car that I had to say it.
