I would place the car securely on jack stands, with the rear end hanging free, and try to find out where the slop is in the rear suspension. Something must be worn out or broken. Carefully inspect where the control arms connect to the chassis to make sure that the torque box isn't loose.
A panhard bar will help but what you are describing is not normal and should be diagnosed before you start using "bandaids" to try to solve the problem.

To be 100% sure put it on a lift to eliminate all doubt.

I would definitely inspect the torque boxes because,if their welds are broken loose,they will definitely make the rear feel loose.I would also check axle shaft movement,side to side.Check the upper & lower control arm mounting brackets,at the axle housing,to make sure the welds aren't broken.
