it wont prevent you over locking the rear, it just makes your cylinder stroke shorter, the pressure produced by the pump is not affected by a chain on the axle LOL ;)
It will however prevent you 'over extending' your cylinders causing them to stick, but thats not quite the same as 'overlocking' due to pressure

And as a bonus you get that heavy duty chain rattleing affect when you hit pumps.

Actually the chain is used primarily for 3 wheeling, it helps snatch the chairs body to pull you into a 3 stance easier, but there are several other reasons.

chains do 2 things. use them as a power teeter toter to pull one front wheel up (standing 3 wheel) as the cylinder pushes the frame up, the chain behind it pulls the rear of the car down,forcing the front up. or some cars with alot of lift have axle/driveshaft problems and need to be limited in certain motions. I've actually seen some fwd cars that had to have chains or the rear would fall out.
