These are likely due to worn hinge pins. These acn be purchased at any autoparts store for around $10-15 for both sides in the package. Get those and let me know and I can get you instructions on how to replace them.

Need to add freon to my 1997 gmc sububan diesel. Need to know which is the low side.

The low side is the smaller valve, and if you are using a one hose system to charge it then that fitting will only fit the low side valve which is the small one, good day.

My 2000 Olds Silhouette power door windows will not go up or down when the doors are closed, but they will work when the door or doors are open or ajar.

closing the door is putting pressure on the door glides,, check to see if the door jam is pushing on a misaligned door window frame,, if it is,, you need to realign the doors upper part that houses the window,, this is often caused by someone simply leaning or hanging on the window frame while talking to someone,,

How to get rotors off 1997 gmc 4x4 truck

Jack up the truck and brace it with a wheel chock. Place at least 2 jack stands to support the weight of the vehicle. The wheels need to be removed. The calipers need to be removed and supported by something other than the hose to the caliper. You may want to use a rubber mallet and beat on the rotors. You may need to remove part of the 4 wheel drive hub first. Check carefully all around to see if there are any places that cause as a hang up.

adjusting the door isn't really possible on your vehicle if i remember correctly. i'm guessing your door is hanging low and if that is the case you will need to replace the door pins and bushings which is a common problem on mostly anything made by gm. hope this is of help too you!
