EbayWhere did you get them?
Edit: Something doesn’t look right. Could the left lift arm be bent a bit more than original? I mean with respect to the right side…
It’s possible the lift link is not correct. I haven’t touched them since I got the tractor about 3 years ago. I will take a look at it when I ge the tractor out and on flat ground.to me, I see a couple of potential issues with your set up.
1) are your lift links correct? It looks like the one on the left needs to be spun a180 degrees. Yellow arrow.
2) Your implement isn't centered. look at the holes in the telescoping stabilizers....(circled in red)

I do like the telescoping stabilizers though. Similar to what's on my B2650. You will as well.
I had the traditional turnbuckles on my old BX23. They are total crap. I bent (and replaced) many of them over the 12 years I had that machine.
’The pins are in different holes in the third pic . Good eye !
No worries. It will be much easier to center it with the telescoping stabilizers for sure. They will be a huge improvement. Regarding the lift link...I really couldn't tell from your pic. It 's the top of the lift link that makes it easier to understand.It’s possible the lift link is not correct. I haven’t touched them since I got the tractor about 3 years ago.

As far as the implement not being centered and the holes being off. You are correct. I just threw the new stabilizer bars on with the tractor in the shed and the box blade already attached. Put the pins I. Where they currently were. Probably means the turnbuckles were not set to even lengths. They were also bent.
Looking forward to being able to tell with these stabilizers.
I will be replacing the cotter pins when I get the tractor out or the shedI hadn't even thought of looking for them on eBay or elsewhere, but I also picked up a set of these - https://www.messicks.com/part/K2561-38300FR/telescopic-stabilizer-kit-kubota-bx-series - I also replaced all the cotter pins with hairpin cotter clips, as I can't stand cotter pins. The rear blower seems a lot more secured in place, and as others have stated, no need for lots of tools to adjust.
Same place i bought mine from for my BX23s. So far so good, they are holding up very well! Hey Jeremy, take a look at my post (#14), go get some of those pins like i posted. Thank me later, lol. You`ll love how much better they`ll work vs the pins they sent with your stabilizers.Ebay

I haven’t looked closely at the lift arms, but I don’t believe one is bent more. I think it is the angle of the pick and also the box scraper that is attached could be shifted to the side some. I will have to check when I get the BX out on a level surface.
You likely won`t regret getting them. I`ve been very pleased with mine, so far. I`m sure at some time, with heavy use, they WILL elongate the holes, bend the pins at some point, but that`s the price we pay for this type of stabilizer. I figure these would save me a ton of time over adjusting the OEM turn buckle style. Wrenching vs move a pin quick, back in business faster, it was a no brainer decision. I think these will outlast those OEM ones easily.I saw those on Ebay and Amazon. They are on my list of items I need to add. The turnbuckles are a pain.
Sorry, can you post some pictures as to what you're referencing? Not sure what plate you flipped over? Did you change the elbow end, so that its angling into the center? I'm not sure that would work.Guys, when i installed my flat bar stabilizers, i noticed that they didn`t fall center line to the cross bar rod that holds the plate in place under the PTO. I thought about that, could they bind up as they move up and down if not running center to the lift arms? I flipped my plate over, and now the stabilizers run center line with the arms. I don`t see any issues running the plate upside down, yet, but the arms seem to go up and down smoother (?). What do you guys think of it. Should i put it back the way it came, or leave it flipped over.
Sorry, i`m not able to post a picture of it right now, maybe later i might be able to get a picture of it.Sorry, can you post some pictures as to what you're referencing?
