Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

A complete inspection of the rear suspension will need to be done to check for loose components. A damaged or worn control arm bushing will cause a loose feel in the rear but I expect the problem is with the track bar. The track bar goes between the frame and differential housing to control the differential's position left and right and keep it centered to the frame. A loose track bar bushing will allow the differential to move left and right independently of the frame to an extent. In rare cases I've even seen a track bar mount bracket break free at one end or the other which would cause a very loose feel.
