I would recommend you replace the entire hinge and forget about repairing it. In my experience this is the best route to take.

The door needs to be supported on a jack with a helper steadying it. With the hinge either on the truck or off, hammer the pin out of the hinge. You may need to grind the tip off to get it out. Hammer the bushings out then install the new bushings in as well as the pin. Do the same for the other hinge.

A guy I met who does body work told me that you impact the door pins out of the hinge. the bushings go bad on them so it causes the door to sag and not close properly.

How do you install door hinges on 98 Chevy blazser?

The factory hinges are welded in place. They can be replaced. The spot welds have to be drilled out and the new hinges are bolted in with backing plates. The cab side upper half of the hinges are the most difficult to replace. They require removing the entire dash assembly. There is a good possiblity that the original hinges can be restored by replacing only the hinge pins and bushings. The hinge pins and bushings are available at your local auto parts store. A good mechanic can do this with out replacing the whole hinge assembly. If the pins are worn beyond the bushings and have worn into the hinge bushing support some welding may be required to fill in the worn area.

How do you adjust the doors on a 1999 GMC Sonoma or S10 truck?

I've worked for GM for over 10 years. Look at your door hinge pins and bushings first, they are probably wore out. To tell if the pins and bushings are worn out, open the door and lift up on it from the end opposite the hinges. If the door has any play at all the pins/bushings are worn. If you let them go too long the holes in the hinge wear the bushings sit can get wallered out.
