sagging doors :(

I looked and did not see a thread for this. How do I fix a sagging door without replacing everything. My door falls far enough that I have to pick out up to get it to close! Some one told me I could shim it but what the heckdoes that mean lol

you just need a pin and bushing kit.you can usually pick that up really cheap at a local autozone.you will just have to support the door and/or have someone help you.then knock the pins out.change the bushings.the reinstall the door and new pins.

it will work.what happens is the bushings in the hinge get wollowed out from years of use.when u put the new ones in the will be very tight.it wil be a huge difference.i think the last time i picked up a set it was like 5$ .as long as someone hasnt adjusted the doors to make up for the saggy hinges the door should close great.if it doesnt them you will have to adjust the hinges,but that is not likely.

On my hinges, there were no bushings, just a hole with a pin through it. The hole has elongated. With that kit I drill out the hole to install bushings?

Lol none taken I have a kit Ijust got for free. Then I looked at some pictures of some and it looks ridiculous for sure! Plus being a ttop i'm sure it will affect how everything seals and I would get annoying wind whistle going down the road!

For sure. But a car is like a tattoo. Each one has a personality and meaning to the person wearing it or driving it. "cool" is a word that means really nothing. But hey I don't think 24" rims are "cool" but someone likes it.

I was hoping but so far all I've seen are new ones, but they are a bit expensive. I was thinking about using something as a shim but that would wear out fast and look bad. I might try to install my own bushings though.

If the hole for the bushing is screwed up, there is another bushing you can get. IIRC it's for a S10.... I have a set of them for my door around here somewhere, I'll have to see of the part # is on the package.
