    I got some new doors the other day, I took my old door off and inpected the hinge, the bushings seems to be pretty wore out and before I put the new door on Id like to get new bushings..

    The problem is, ive never seen hinges like these before, how do I get the pin out? it seems to be locked in there pretty good.

    What all should I replace on my hinges and by any chance would anyone have the part numbers to make it a little easyier to track them down at the auto stores?

    Id like to hear any tips on uninstalling/installing if possible

    Thanks guys

    You have to pound the shafts out, no bushings as far as i know. Just a pin or shaft whatever you wanna call it.

    so there isnt a bushing that sits in between the hinge hole and the shaft/pin/rod??? I sear I see some type of bushing in there to keep the pin from wobbling or to keep it secure/tight..

    The hinges have bronze bushings in there (that always seem to wear out). Most "Help" sections at parts stores carry stock and IIRC there are a few different sizes.

    I just pulled out the pins, the bushings look to be nylon, do I replace them with nylon or what? or will bronze work?

    Do I just take my pins and bushings to the auto store and match up what they have? or do I need to use a certain type?

    Autozone has the pins and bushings in the help section. Ask them to look up what set works for your truck.
