    just buy the new locks & keys from LMC- if you can take a door panel off- you can put new locks on- its easy.

    I just bought a nice new pair of black locks for my truck, cost me 22 bucks. took about oh 20 minutes to do both sides. all you have to do is take off the door panel and pull out the clip that holds it in.......put the linkage on the back of the new lock and slip it back in and put the clip back around it and reassemble, simple!

    Quite often the clips that hold the lock cylinder to the door are a real bitch to get off. I recommend getting some long needle nose pliers with a 90 degree bend. Thay pull the clips real good. Harbor Freight Tools sells them for about $5.
