door pins

I'm in the process of putting new pins amd bushings in my driver side door. I've put pins in b4 in other vehicles. But these was a little different getting them out. I have everything out now amd but the new bushings didn't want to drive in. So I took a drill bit amd drilled the holes just alittle in the door hinges. And finally got the bushings in but they are oblong shape amd I dontknow how tuff it's going to be to get the pins in since the bushings are oblong. Taking a break now. Y'all have any tips or anythinh

They are oblong or egg shaped to help hold them in the hole and keep them from rotating.
You were supposed to tap them in without drilling out the hole and they would have rounded out to fit the pins going into the hole.
Now you should probably tap them on the side to round them out before installing them and then epoxy them in place so they don't move or pop out.

I've got them in now. Man feels like a new door shutting and closing. I didn't drill much at all. It just didn't seem like they would have drove in without messing the bushin up. But I got it. Good amd tight. Thansk

Just make sure the pin is rotating in the bushing and not the bushing rotating in the door hinge.
