Hi, A couple years back, someone was talking about throwing away there flat bar stabilzers and using chains to stabilize side-to-side movement. I want to do this 'cause my original bars are all bent and keep bending and are quite a pain as i had to remove the original brackets and use my loader frame as the point under the axle for attaching them too. Has anyone used the stay chains, do they work good, any downside to the chains vs. the flatbar type. I thought about adjustable bars, but my ferguson plow doesn't have long enough pins for the bars, so i thought chains may work better if i weld them to the lift arms or something.
any info or suggestions here guys.
thank you very much for your opinions.

I never heard of anyone using stabilizer chains either, but Stevens has them for $70. You adjust them via turnbuckle and adjustable clevis.

It would seem to me that the stabilizer straps, mounted inder the axles, need to operate in compression and tension (pushing and pulling). Chains are only good for tension. How would you mount them?
