    My drivers side door is sagging to the point where it is rubbing the top of the latch on the cab. It's starting to get annoying and I want to fix it. Do I need to get new hinges at the dealer or can I get them cheaper somewhere else?
    Thanks

    If you are mechanically inclined, and have the right tools, you can replace the bushing in the hinge pins.

    New hinges are absolutely not necessary. Just make sure the hinge bolts are tight, which I'm sure they will be, then simply lift up on the door to adjust it to where it needs to be. You can even use a 2x4 in the door jam with the door open, and pry up on it as a lever. Just use a rag between the door and wood if you use this route. Trust me, you will not hurt your door by doing this. I have used this method MANY times on many different vehicles. It is a common problem, with an easy fix.

    Thank you. I'll see what its going to take to do that.

    Thanks. My mom's suburban had this problem bad and replacing the hinges fixed it. Maybe it wasn't necessary though?
