All of my FH implements (harrows, plow, and now rear carrier) show evidence of side sway on the vertical extension on top of the FH assembly. Seems like there's a bit of side to side movement resulting in the vertical fin contacting the FH side members. Don't know if it anything other than a "hello" or if it is a stop of sorts. The paint gets worn off in time. Perhaps a bit of slop or...?

Some things might benefit from sideways "slop", others not. My fh layoff plow needs to be steady whereas the disc could benefit from some side ways "roll".
