I prefer to keep my money in my pocket to spend on fun stuff so when i did mine i used a floor jack and a 2x4 between them so the jack didnt scrap the door. using a chisel i pounded the pins out used channel locks to press the bushings out. now to press them in i used channel locks and put a semi deep socket on the side where the bushing would come through the hinge so i can use the pliers to press it in and it would go into the socket rather than being crushed by lower jaw of pliers

The EASY way is to take it to a body shop and pay them $75 to do it for you...honestly, this is a BIG job.
Good Luck

    You know the body shop might not charge you that much...maybe only $25?
    Best of Luck

How do you replace door hinge pins on a 1999 chevy silverardo


The pins are driven out since they are driven is. Have the door supported on some sort of lifting device securely since it will become wobbly upon removal. Do one hinge at a time. The upper one gets the most wear
