I'm new to stabilizers. Can anyone tell me if these will fit as replacements on this board?
Looks very similar to my K-type and I am using these gmk stabs on it right now. There is a good video on IC about how to change them that I followed since it was my first time. It is a world of difference! I kept the original white housings (the gmk ones wouldn't seem to fit as well) but used the gmk stabs which are like twice the size of the crap it came with and the gmk 4 pronged thing.
press in the little tabs at the bottom of the stabilizer - (located on the side which does not have the wire on it; in the center) then the stabilizer should pivot up and can be pulled out. If this description is not clear look it up on youtube as there are several videos
While you are replacing them I recommend clipping and lubing your stabilizers
as well as lubricating your key switches - which is slow and boring but completely worth it as it makes them far smoother and reduces switch noise - (not the click and clack but the noise of the spring -aka ping, and the noise of the mechanism as it travels - the slight scratchy noise)
