Default Rear spring shackle

In rebuilding the rear axle, I replaced the shackles with new ones and the new sleeve bushings. I did not ream the bushings as they are already to large. You can now rock the spring back and forth (not in the car) a few inches. Any suggestions on how to repair this situation or is it OK the way it is? After all, the radius rods will keep the rear end where it belongs. Jack
