need help car feels sloppy

did upper and lower control arms...but still the rear end feels sloppy, also normal take off gives me a bad shake in the car and you can feel it in the shifter..almost like its wheelspin and it just cant grab the road, but also similiar to clutch chatter. but when im on fresh pavement iand take off normally i can hear the little squeels from the tires ...i have no idea what it is and its about to make me sell the car

What control arms did you buy? And as I found out from another trusted source the uppers should be left OEM, just replace the bushings. Reason being the aftermarket uppers with their stiff bushings cause so much strain to the torque box that it can not hande that kind of stress and causes the torque boxes to break away. You can buy a torque box reinforcement kit for using new aftermarket UCA. If you go with a torque arm and pan hard bar, then you can get rid of the uppers all together.

What was the reason for the new control arms prior to this? And please give a better explaination of what you are experiencing with the rearend.

The stock suspension in these cars are terrible. In this order is what needs to be done to them for good handling:
1. Subframe connectors
2. Rear Lower Control Arms
3. Panhard Bar
4. Torque Arm.
5. Springs/shocks/struts (or coilovers)
6. Sway bars (these depend on how you drive the car)
