I have that same lathe never had a problem with the tail stock. Looks like you have a good fix for your problem. I finally cut a piece of 3/4 ply and put on top of that sheet metal stand then bolted lathe thru it. That help with the thunder and vibration a bunch, I also put a 3/4plu shelf on the cross braces and will eventually throw some sandbags on that and that should help a bunch more. The lathe itself is not too bad a lathe but the stand needs to go away.
