    Default Door sag diagnoses?

    I've noticed a few of my doors sagging. The hinges dont seem to move when I lift doors, the play seems to be in the pin. I assumed pins are worn and ordered a bunch. What are common causes I should check for?

    Did you order new bushings for the new pins also?

    Theres also a inexpensive tool that makes changing the pins alot easier.Most automotive stores have them.

    Bushings? no did not know. I'll check for the tool.
    Thanks for the tips guys, so it is likely just the pin/bushing wear.

    my new hinge pins come with bushings and are greasable.
    I'm now looking for door checks, the metal hingey door limiter thingy that keeps door form swingin too far or closing.
    No luck so far, any sources for these?

    I've seen them at AutoZone-maybe $15 or so.
