I believe the valve is located in the frame just in front of the transmission.
You could try swapping the coils to see if one is damaged. I usually find the wires are torn off and the coil must be replaced. I will look for the specific location and post back in a little bit.

I need to correct the location. The stabilizer valves are part of the main control valve. It is the two solenoid controlled at the front side of the valve.

I found this schematic to help you identify the wires to the solenoids.

Let me know if you need more help on this.

Here are the switches too. Note the ground is controlled by the switch just like the power is controlled.
