1991 s10 door hinge pins
I have been searching for some good "how-to" directions for replacing door hinge pins and bushings. I have to swap some doors on my s10 and just wondering if somebody can give me some insight or point me to a good thread.1999 Chevrolet Suburban LS K1500

I had a big tree to pull under, roll down the window, wrap top with a towel, get some rope.95 tahoe 2dr 4x4 200,000+ miles

There fun!...(sarcasm) But a necessary evil for all of us that have GM vehicles. The door spring seems to be the biggest problem, trying to get it back in. They DO make a special tool for this, and I am currently borrowing one from my buddy to do mine. Take the WHOLE door off (should be connectors for wiring harness inside of cubbyhole in truck cab), be careful with the brass bushings, have an extra hand and just be careful not to scratch the paint. That's about all the help i can give.

Yeah I see a lot of stuff about that spring, but i think my concern is with removing the pins. From what I have come across all you have to do is punch them out and punch the new ones, same with the bushing.

The tool compresses it in place and prevents the search -or- a trip to the ER...
Don't let it go so long that the bushing wears thru and make the hole to big, then it will sag forever unless you repair the bushing hole...LMC sells new hinges you can install after drilling out the spot welds
