Re: door pin changing
Most I've changed have just been able to be driven up from the bottom. Support the door with a floor jack to take tension off of it and be careful not to let worn grooved spots prevent the pin from moving upwards. Most good kits I've seen also come with bronze replacement bushings...worth the couple of dollars extra.

get a floor jack and a pieces of wood lay the wood on the jack and jack up till it meets the bottom of the door. this will support the door when you pull the pins. using a pry bar pop the little spring inside the door out. its on the top hinge.if the pins have a retainer on the end of them remove this clip the new ones came with this. using a hammer and long punch drive out the pins and pull the door. if it has electric windows just pull it away enough to access the holes for the pins. using the hammer and punch drive out the bushings and install the new bushings.slide the door to the holes and install the new pins make note of the direction of the old pins and install the same way. install the clips on the ends of the pins and reinstall the spring. i do so many i made a tool for reinstalling the spring its a little tricky to get in with your pry bar but not installing the pin will cause the door to swing without restraint. heres a break down picture to help guide you. hope this helps
remove both wheels
Remove the center axle cover
remove the inner axle C clips
they just slide right out easily
Disconnect the drive shave
Remove the pinion nut behind the drive shaft on the axle
Remove the screw inside the pin for the pinion gears
remove 2 pinion gears and the shaft
Now you can gain access the the bolts for the carrier
If you're after changing the bulbs, then here you go. Raise the hood. Looking at the top of the headlight assembly, you will see either one or two pins that are shaped like an upside-down "L". You'll only see the part that goes across. Pull the pins up, and pull the assembly foreward, out of the body. Disconnect the wires, and set it aside. Look at the turn signal from above. There is a plastic clip that you have to push in on, and then the turn signal housing will swing away from the body. You can then change the bulb. After you're done, but it back like you found it, and you're good to go.
The repair kit that you purchase should have recommended steps for replacement. With the kit that I purchased, I had to grind the bottom of the upper & lower pins off. Since this was a quick fix, my brother assisted by holding the door steady on the blocks that we set the door on. I removed the old pins. The new pins were threaded and were pulled into place as the retaining nuts were tightened. We set the door back in place and were done. I purchased the pin kits from my buddy at a local body shop.
get a floor jack and a block of wood, open the door fully and support the door (if you have a helper it makes it a lot easier to have someone hold the door as well, tap the pins out with a punch of some kind and a hammer, i would also change the bushings for the pins, tap the old bushings out then tap the new ones in, be carefull and note which direction the bushings and the pins are facing, its not hard at all just takes some finesse and time, hope this helps!
Just pull on the Bottom of the Panel and you will be Started. There are a Couple of Screws in the Top panel Like the Arm Rest and the Handle Housing. Got a 95' Silverado also. This happens from time to time. Start at the Bottom of the Door Panel and Loosen. Remove the Screws from the Top Panel. The Panel will Probably not come all the Way off so, You will need to work under it. That Handle is just Pinned. Once you get up to it Just remove the Pin. Buy some Replacement Plastic Clips for the Panel. You will need them!
