How could it be the pitman arm as it's just a piece of bent metal?!?!?!

The "slop" (which is a relative term here) can be attributed to so many things in the steering linkage.

Given that you have replaced some parts, I'd suggest a proper alignment be done first. Your caster could be off enough that it makes for needing to correct steering often. Additionally, toe-in can also contribute to this.

Start with those things first before looking at large cost items like the gear box. A picture of the gear box and pitman arm would be helpful.
