I have a 2016 mach 429 trail with play in the rear bottom shock mount, even after I bought new bushing kit. It was good for about 4 rides now has play again. I bought: https://www.fanatikbike.com/products/fox-racing-shox-rear-shock-mounting-hardware?variant=8297710787

pivot says what I bought is the correct size kit (8X21.84), wondering if I need something like this in different size: https://www.fanatikbike.com/products/fox-rear-shock-polyurethane-du-bushings-pair?variant=8041666019374

Can the lower eye in the shock get ovalized over time?

Sometimes you have to fine tune the plastic bushings assuming that's where the play has developed. Try removing the 2 plastic pieces and placing a 1/4" strip of tape laterally In the eyelet. Reinstall and check for play.
