Anybody thought of this before? Been fighting my sway bars for years on my various tractors, when backing up to an implement their always falling down, have tied them over the years, put bolts through them and lift arm to hold in place while backing up, you name it and I've probably tried it. Today I welded some bolts to each sway bar and can now lay them across the lift arm and back up with out them falling off, can drive all over property without an implement and they will now stay put, somebody else has thought of this before me I'm sure....

My hybrid sway bar setup.

They have lower link balls on the fender ends and I put a big flat washer on each to to hold the ball tight & square.
I usually undo and reconnect when connecting implements.

Regular lynch pin rings still lock well with them too.

All clever ideas to keep from bending those bars.This is what I did:I took 2 pieces of flat stock about 7 inches long and bent them into an "S".One leg of the S goes over the lift arm,the other leg goes under the stab. bar.

I did mine several years ago by using 1/2 of a large washer welded to the top of the lift arm 4in. in from the end. Works great!!! Jim in N.M.

Farmer Dan on the N board has been using these stays for years. Basically the same thing only welded hook.

Will try to post a photo of my solution of keeping the sway bars on my Ford 2000 3 cylinder gasser. Basically, added a clevis hitch to each sway bar and then suspend them with a chain that hangs from each fender. Keeps them up and out of the way and I haven't backed over one yet. third party image

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1964 JD 2010 Dsl - Part 2 - by Jim Nielsen. Despite having to disassemble the majority of my John Deere 2010's diesel engine, I was still hopeful I could leave the engine-complete with crankshaft and camshaft-in the tractor. This would make the whole engine rebuild job much easier-and much less expensive! I soon found however, that the #4 conrod bearing had disintegrated, taking with it chunks of the crankshaft journal. As a resul ... [Read Article]
