1st thing to check is the condition of the mounting bushes in the ends of the leaf springs as these should have no free play and also that the bolts securing the axle to the spring are tight

also check for worn mountings - check the tightness of the engine and gearbox mounts and their condition - this is best done by using a jack to take the weight of the engine off the mounts and seeing if any cracks or splits open up in the rubber.Also check the tightness of the mounts bolts
