Couple different places that the bushings wear. Put the car on ramps and climb underneath with a flash light. Look at the rod that goes to the side of the tranny to the bottom of the rod from the shifter location. There are plastic/nylon bushings at each end. When these wear it does get sloppy. I am working on an SD model now that has a pretty sloppy feeling shifter. When I took a look at it this evening I found the slop to be in the shifter bushing itself. I am going to have to get out my parts picture to ascertain the exact bushing that is worn on this one. The bushings at the ends of the rod looked good.
