I use stabilizer bars with my Dearborn Disc Harrow and Dearborn Spring Tooth Harrow to help keep from swinging side to side when I transport and on turns when I lift. I just find they help track straighter too. Otherwise, mowing and back blading for sure and using my boom. When back blading, I found they are a tremendous advantage especially when pushing backwards. They just help keep the blade from kicking off to one side and add solid support. It isn't mandatory that you use them, I just found they work well for me. I didn't mention cultivators, rotary hoes, or weeders and agree you want some side to side movement as too with a plow.
