dunno about the fords much but my chevy 10 bolt had some slop in the yoke, put a new seal in(15bucks)tightened to factory spec and shes spins nicely and has no slop. Dont overtighten it, it'll get really stiff.

new crush sleeve i hope. if yes then keep going its very precise and you gotta know the right feel and preload. prob best to get it set up prop et a shop. remember to give each end of the pinion a "tap" with a punch to set your bearings. you'll know when youve gone too far. look up the spec and youll find the turning force needed in inch/lbs not much. ill try to find you some specs tommorow, pm for more details
