You need to check for worn bushes and linkages. If any are worn or damaged, replacing them should solve the problem.

I just got a tranny rebuild would it be on the trans or will it be in the steering column

If problem was not there prior to trans rebuild, it should be at trans side. You need to check to confirm.

----A FACTORY MANUAL (SOME DISTORTIONS FROM BEING SCANNED). THIS IS THE BEST MANUAL YOU CAN USE
INSTALL "JEEP CJ 7"
THEN CHASSIS-STEERING COLUMNS (4,076KB)
DEPENDING ON WHERE THE SLOP IS---YOU MAY NEED A PIN---A BEARING--MAYBE THE WHOLE COLLAR--ETC.
SOMETIMES YOU CAN DRILL THE PIVOT HOLE A LITTLE LARGER TO MAKE IT A "PERFECT CIRCLE" AGAIN, THEN USE A LARGER PIN IN THE NEW HOLE
