    My door don't line up properly. Someone told me that I needed new hinge pins. Anything else I should look into?

    New door pins are in the help section of the local auto parts store and they come with bushings. I believe I paid about $8 a pin. I would replace every thing before trying to adjust it.

    I just did mine today. It's easy but take your time and don't rush. I took my door off, If you don't have power stuff I would recomend you do too. Scribe a mark around the DOOR SIDE of the hinge. Then pull out the sawsall and cut the old pins in the middle. It' a good idea to have somone or somthing to hold the door for you. I had the kid next door and some milk crates. Push old pins and bushings out and replace with new. Use some "c" clamps and sockets to remove and install. Reinstall door and adjust. Also, check the home page and go to tech articals. Somone has a write-up on removable doors.

    Yeah

    If you have power windows locks or anything of that sort dont assume it'll be fun or easey to re-intsall the door after cutten em all off. It's a bitch i know form experiance. Leave the door up there, but still replace the pins.

    Crap! I forgot about that!!:mad: I I guess I'll have to wait till I swap in non-power doors. I was going to get rid of that stuff so I can run quik removable doors. The old ones have rust anyhow.:doah:
