Kenny how about making a brace that attaches to the lift arms that should take the sway out of it. Kind of like this

Put bolts through the holes in the lift arms to make it removable.

The problem was the lift arms allowed it to sway. By hooking into the hitch, it stopped a bunch of sway.

I was thinking that bracing it like that would stop the sway.. It would take any slop out of the hitch.

 

I am no engineer though. I don't even sleep at a Holiday Inn Express.
