I don't know the size of the float links, but if your lift is like the one I have, it has a built in float. Red circle:

If you run the actuator all the way down, the arms will only drop until the attachment touches the ground. A plow, disc, tiller, or whatever, will then dig its way in. It will float up and down. As far as I can tell the early versions did not have this feature and required the floating links. I maybe wrong, but this is how it works for me.
