Ok so the other day I was at a stoplight and i went to accelerate and there was a horrible grinding noise and the car wouldnlt move. I found that somehow all the bolts that hold the drivers axle to the trans had backed out. Well i fixed that but now for some reason i cant find R or 5th with the shifter????? Sooooo is there a way to readjust this? Shifting wasnt an issue prior to this so im not sure how these two are related......

Sounds like you have play in the linkage, in 3rd or 4th does the lever move side to side more than a tiny bit?
In gear get someone to move the lever while you look for the part that slops about.

Yes actually all gears have a certain degree of sloppiness.......not sure if i remember them being that sloppy before. Im sure most all the shifter components are 25 years old. Ill be ordering the rebuild bushing kit and replacing most all the parts.
