 Quick connect hook up for bucket and forks on FEL

I have a JD730 FEL on a JD990. I switch on the go alot between a bucket and forks. Sometimes the two attachment carriers (they are the points of attachment at the end of each loader mast--the top end of each attachment carrier slides into the hook or "ear" on the top of the bucket/forks and the bottom has a strap with a hole that goes over a pin on bottom of the bucket/forks). Anyway, when I disconnect say the bucket, sometimes one of the carrier attachment drops down lower than the other. As a result, when I go to pick up the forks, one side may mate with the "ear" but the other side is rolled more upright so that it won't catch its "ear." I have tried curling the loader ful up when I drop the bucket off to get both sides in sync. This doesn't work for reasons I don't understand. I know this is hard to visualize which is why I have waited a couple of years to post the question. The problem really slows me down. What's the fix?

You have a sheared pin on the rod that goes across to the orther side loader arm. check the pins on both side of that rod. See if that your problem.

My 4115 does the same thing.

I use the dump circuit to lower/extend the arm when I disconnect so I end up with the tips that go into the top sockets really extended.

That seems to help on re-connect but sometimes I have to extend the arms even further and drive forward to get both to line up again.
