Default Door hinge pin and bushing replacement.

This is a guide to replace your door pin bushings. Bad or worn out bushings will cause your door to sag and drop upon opening. This does not require to remove the door.

First step is to prop up the door. I used an old cooler and some wood.


Second step is to remove the exsisting pin. I used a dremel with a cut off wheel and the sanding disc to cut the head of the pin off. I then ground it flush and used a center punch and hammer to knock it thru.


Followed by the bolts.


Remove the hinge.


Here are the old bushings in the hinge.


New pin and bushing kit. $10


New and old bushings.


The new bushings are larger in diameter than the old ones. Easily fixed with the dremel. Take your time and enlarge the holes to fit the bushing. You do not want the bushing to go in to hard it will deform the inside. You want it to be pressed in lightly with the aid of a small pair of pilers.


One side done after boring.




To re-install.

Put the hinge back in place. Insert the pin thru the new bushings.



The bottom may need a C-clamp to pull the upper and lower peices together to get the E-clip on the end of the pin.


After pin is in and E clip is attached, reinstall the bolts. Line up any exsisting washer marks and paint marks. As long as the door does not move thru out this process it should bolt right back into place.

Enjoy a sag free door!

Thanks for this write up. I was out messing with the truck and notice my door sags a ton it is sad really. I know it is the bushing because when i lifted up on the door i could watch the pin move.

Great write up. Do you have to cut the top of the bolt or could you cut it in the center of the bolt and push the top and bottom out?

You talking about the center pin? I think it would be easier to cut the top flush then knock it thru

I have a 91 ranger and I can't find any Pin and bushing replacement kits for it. I saw ones for 93 and 94. I'm not sure if they are different or the same for the 91 but there was no listing of a 91 kit.
