door hinge pin and bushings

if your gonna do this, you will want the kit, the pins and the bushings, period. also a gm door spring tool to remove and especially install the spring back in. You won't be able to get one of the pins out, without the spring outta the way.

Yup ,youll need a spring tool..I find its easier to leave the door on the car ,remove one hinge (as a unit) and repair it on the bench ,put it back on then remove the other..marking the location speeds things up.I use a floor jack too..If you need to drill it ,use a drill press or else the holes might not be in line,
TIP: Before you remove a hinge ,mark its location by drawing a line around the outside edge(both halves)also with some masking tape mark the top door side and top jamb side ...so you dont get one side upside down

Hinge and bushings

Yes, pictures help of course, and mark your original hinge locations as suggested. Don't be surprised if when your done, the door will be off a little. Might not be but could. But by marking the original locations, you will have less time messing around with fine tuning it to have everything fit properly. Take your time, Even the tool is not expensive most auto parts stores carry them, most made by lisle tools. Take your time, and it's not hard, just like a mini puzzle. One hinge at a time.
