    well then... go to your local auto parts store and see about new hinge pins and bushings(some come in kits, some are individual). some stores offer them and some won't know what you're talikng about.

    what area are you in? i'll see if i can find you a store that will be able to help you? or do you already have a store that has what you need?

Drivers door / standard cab / log wheel base / C1500 appears to be sagging and locking mechanism is heavily striking on frame "bar" attachment. Looking for way to adjust door.. Door hard to open from...

There is no adjustment for these door hinges. With the door open wiggle the door up and down and inspect the door hinges while doing so. I suspect that you will find the upper hinge is bad. These can be had at most junk yards or through a dealer. The dealer depends on if they still support that truck anymore.

Some local auto parts have replacement door/hinge pin-kits for Ford products. (If not order from your local Ford dealer) The pins may need heated with a torch and driven out with a long spline pin punch. You might want to get a mechanic to do this for you.

Driver door sags, and is hard to close

Door pins and bushings are a common part to wear out on a lot of the GM's. Have someone lift end of door for you while you watch where hinges and pins are. Not an expensive or overly difficult task, if your mechanically inclined, otherwise, a bodyshop, or mechanic, shouldn't charge any more than a half hour to replace them.

The front door hinges are sagging how do I change them

I believe your hinge pins are worn. The only fix is to replace the hinges or the hinge pins. Neither is a pretty job.

Repair door sag on a Chevy Suburan

The door hinges have pins in them. The pins have bushings in the hinge. If you go down to your local parts parts store you will be able to purchase them. They are brass colored. You will need to unbolt the doors and use a punch to hammer out the bushings and use a hammer to replace them.

Door sag

Hello, you need to replace the hinge pins and bushings. Just take a hammer and knock the hinge pins out and put the new pins with bushings in the hole and tap it into place. Some vehicles have a locking ring on the bottom of the hinge pin just knock it off with your hammer and a screwdriver. They don't have to be replaced but, if you want the dealer sells those too. Good luck and any questions please ask.

How do you adjust door latchs

I don't think the problem is the door latches. Sounds more likely that the hinge pins are gone. You say you have to lift the door and slam it. When the hinge pins go the door will sag and you will need to lift it up to align with the striker pin on the door frame. Get a new set of hinges for your truck.

Hope this helps
