Double u joint set up question

I am using a double u joint set up to connect my steering box to the steering column, I have already fabricated it, and it is almost ready to mount. My question is about the flexability in the mount on the steering box end. It is made so that it can have some play in it, and I would assume to absorb vibration and movement of the frame relative to the body.. is that extra play in that mount going to cause my u joints to bind, or the steering shaft to have a wobble?
If it is a problem can I just make the mount on the steering box end more rigid or will I need an arm with a bushing to steady the shaft?
