88 Camaro: sloppy drive train.

Hi,
Got an 1988 Camaro with 5-speed (305 TBI), and got drive train questions. 104K miles, and the drivetrain seems really sloppy, and I'm note sure where to start. Its been
like this for a while, but wanting to find out if I can tighten this up any way. Letting on/off the gas in 1st gear while tooling around slowly is horable, and there's gotta be something I can do. The car is absolutly cherry too. So, what kind of differential is in this thing, and is there an easy way to adjust/take up excess gear lash that might be in the rear end. I've heard that this car as a T-5 (?) tranny in in - is it possible that these T-5 tranny's are notoriously "sloppy" as well, and maybe the whole combination in general is sloppy. Any suggestions ? Reason I ask is, I'm about to pull out the tranny to replace a noisy throw-out bearing (and clutch etc while I'm at it), so suggestions along those lines welcome too.
Thanks !

I'd be looking at the tranny and engine mounts as well as U-joints at that kind of mileage. You don't describe the "slop" very well, so it's tough to pinpoint you into the right area.

305 TBI's were awful in the pickup department.
