    Your chains should be able to limit movement down to nothing.

    Take out a link on each side maybe? Or do you have that option?
    Sometimes you can cheat by using a repair link to shorten the chain, if the turn buckle can't take up all the slack.

    Pics would help..as always.
    The Massey 135 is one of my favorites anyway.

    Get a set of stabilizer arms like these: Tractor Supply Online Store - Enjoy searching:stabilizer arms

    If your tractor doesn't have the brackets to attach them to, you'll need a set of those too.

    These are just an example, most small equpment jockey's that deal in used equipment, but also handle new parts should have, or be able to get them. I entered my zip code, just to get pricing to give you an idea what they should cost.

    MF 135s have a bracket under the axle attached by the bolts that hold the fender on. There should be several holes there to attach a stabilzer pin through (A stabilizer pin looks like a very short lift arm pin). That will be where the forward end of a stabilizer will connect. Use two stabilizers rather than one. This will help prevent bending the stabilizer. I prefer one solid stabilizer and one adjustable.

    On the TSC page posted by DJ54 there is a photo of the bracket on the third row down second photo from the left.
