Default New steering box rebuild for 78 BB.

Picked up the bus the night before our family camping trip. In the mountains the steering fells lose. I know the shop had to do lots of adjustments so I hope they can tight-in it up?
I will be out of town for 2 weeks fishing in remote Alaska, so I will ask the shop to look into this before I get home, what do you think?

Maybe something they worked on loosened up or maybe it showed a weakness further down the line like drag link or tie rod/end

Back from our trips.
I hope to get the 78FC back to the shop next week. My brother helped look for steering movement and we think the slop is between the wheel and the box, but you can not see anything with out removing the inside covers and maybe the floor plate.
What should I look for before I return to the shop???
Crit: the rod ends were replaced and all under there was inspected.
