Question about 2000 Chevrolet Blazer
I need to replace both and there is a spring in the way
I just replaced the drivers side bushings on an 01 Jimmy, bought a spring compressor at the local parts store when I bought the bushings made easy work of the spring. $10 tool is worth the investment. Google the repair for tips

Remove your doors and replace your bushings. You will have to manually replace the spring after you install the new bushings. It's kind of a pain to get it back in, but a little common sense, and prying will get it back in place.

you need a special spring compressing tool to remove and reinstall the hinge spring and then its a matter of removing the door installing the new bushing and rehang the door with new pins ive tried doing this while leaving the door on the car trust me its just harder that way good luck and please rate -jeff

yes you have to remove the door ... the pin have a C washer lock at the bottom. electircal wires are to be unpluged from inside the door or at the driver kick panel

Harbor Freight has the tool for $3.99. I just bought one last Friday and replaced my hinge pins this weekend on my 2000 Chevy Blazer. You have to get that tool. Online they are $15.00. Make sure you support the door before you take out the old pins. I just lowered the window, took rope and tied it to the garage rafters and was all set. have fun!

1. Place masking tape on the inside edges of the door, on both the inside and outside of the door. 2. Remove the door spring by using a door spring removal tool. Insert the tool into the door spring, turn the knob with a screwdriver to compress the spring, then pull out the tool. 3. Set a 5-gallon bucket under the door. This will help support the weight of the door. 4.Place a nail punch under the hinge pin, and strike it with a hammer. Repeat this until the hinge pin begins to come out of the hinge. 5.Place the end of a flat-head screwdriver under the top of the hinge pin, then strike the screwdriver with the hammer to force the hinge pin out of the hinge. 6. Place the bushing on top of the new door hinge pin, and tap it into place with the hammer. 7. Insert the new hinge pin into the hinge. Tap on the hinge pin with the hammer and nail punch to force the pin into the hinge. 8. Insert the hinge spring back into the door, and release the tension on the spring removal tool. 9. Spray the door hinge with a lubricating spray or apply grease.
I know there are a few directions but it is fairly easy to do. If you have access to an air hammer and a compressor you can use this in place of a manual hammer to make the process a bit easier.
Hope this helps.
