Okay, so I'll give ya'll some pictures so you can have an idea of what it is we are talking about.
Here's the bad spindle mount on the one that's installed right now:

Here's the good side:

They both have a ton of play.
Here's the axle I would install:

The spindles mounts on this one are just pipes welded on, not like the stock one.

They have minimal play.  To get it to fit, I'd have to trim that pipe that sticks through the center and drill a bigger hole for the pivot bolt.  Should be able to do that, probably gonna be my solution to the issue.

Yeah that's definitely not a cast axle, but it does looks like a good axle! I would swap it in for sure.

Okay, yeah I was wondering if it wasn't.  If it wasn't for the very nice welds on it, I'd think that from the style it'd be homemade.  I'll get to swapping that later. Thanks for the advice!

Okay, got the front axle swapped. Steering and all stays the same, and I kept the stock spindles. I was lucky enough that I didn't have to trim the axle pivot thing; I just flipped on of the mounts backwards.

Have to trim part of a mount to get the tie rod to fit, but that's not a big deal.

Everything's going well, got the tranny mounted but can't show public pics because it would show the suspension deal in the rear.  The front axle swap I did isn't gonna work, it's too long so I have to put the stock one back in.  Need to get the rear pulley hub welded to the pulley. 
Haven't had much time lately, the sheep are lambing, I've started to clear some land, etc.  That's why I was offline for a while if you noticed.  Thanks for asking though!  Very Happy
