    Default 96 door hinge pins

    I am needing to replace my pins on the driver's front door. my welds look good and don't seem to be pulling away from the frame also a body shop suggested just replacing the pins. But for some reason I can not find any pins for early xjs only 97+! Does anyone have any links for some products?

    really getting sick of my door not shutting and sagging.

    Steven, there is an easy fix. First grease those pins. Then loosen the bolts on the top and bottom hinge, then slip one of the shims out of the top and put it in the bottom. Repeat if necessary

    So just shim the bottom hinge?
