As far as the output shaft goes, I'm not sure what the max tolerance is for side-to-side (radial) play. Someone that has a tech manual might be able to tell you.
There's a bushing in the tailshaft housing that's pretty easy to change out since you have it apart anyway. I "think" it's called a yoke suport bushing... I think what really matters is what kind of play do you have with the front driveshaft yoke installed on the splines?
