Creating simulated bipeds, need help with angles

I've been working on making simulated bipeds for my video game, and I need help increasing joint rotation stability.

For a joint to maintain a constant angle relative to itself and additional surfaces (an ankle joint for example), what's the best way to avoid massive oscillation and feedback loops?

So far, I've tried adding/subtracting angle rotation differences with a tolerance, and messing with Delta angles (incorrectly, I assume), and while these solutions work, they don't provide an optimal response time.

What is the most efficient, stable way for a simulated joint to maintain a desired target angle?

I feel like I've come close a few times, but I'm more or less fumbling around in the dark, I have very little math experience.

I have a few rudimentary working examples, and some mostly accurate results with slightly cheated physics, but I need to improve my joint stability if I want to go all the way with an accurate simulation.

Here's some video of it:
