    Door hinges and rebuild kits.

    I've been looking for replacement new door hinges for the 2 door b body. Unfortunately, I can't find any that suppose to go for our cars. Have anyone had and luck with the door hinges or rebuilding? If so what parts are being used ?

    I'm trying...with limited success...to replace the pins and bushings, but the pin kits you get at the parts store don't come with enough of the right bushings. Usually, this that's all you need are new pins and bushings. The 2dr and front door 4dr hinges are identical, so if you find a 4dr with good hinges, you can go that route.

    Thanks Kit. It's more or less the roller pin bushings. Now that I know I'll look collectively at a yard. It's just things link hinges. I'll rather have those new.

    I used the pins and bushing in the Help! kit doors have been good for 3 years of daily driving. The bushings may need a little help ( sorry) to work I had to massage one and shim another.
