steering play

I have had my steering box replaced on my 73 450 sl, and still there is a little bit of play; about 1/2 inch. I know this is within specs, but it still bugs me. When the box was replaced, the coupling bushings were also replaced, but is this the same as replacing the entire coupling? Could replacing the entire coupling make a difference? I've had the steering box adjusted, and the front end checked out by a couple of different mechanics, and everyone says everything is ok. Isn't there any way to get all the play out?

Currently: 73 450 sl; 94 Jaguar XJ6
