    Back when my car was being repainted (early 2001), the driver's door was sagging so the body guy bought one of those Help! hinge pin kits for it. IIRC there were two different sizes, we just picked the size that was closest and it was dead on. Been using it ever since with no issues. At that time, most door hinges used one of those two pin kits so it was no problem figuring out which one it was. Doesn't surprise me if a truck pin kit works on a car, or vice versa.

    All I can tell you is that the hinges on my Fox Mustang suuuuuck compared to the Birds hinges. I replaced all the hinges on my Bird in '98 when the car was repainted and they are still like new. I have put three sets of pins and bushings in the Mustang since 2000 and just put the fourth set in last month. You cannot replace the door side of the Mustang hinges as that is welded to the door which is a BS deal but I guess is cut down on assembly time.

    I came across this thread recently because I'm rebuilding a door hinge. The metal spring that holds the door check was broken like others - it turns out that both part numbers Aerocoupe provided are correct. You need one of each (E3SZ-6323504-A and E3SZ-63235A62-A), one is the spring, the other is a reinforcement.

    This help kits are junk, at least the last one I bought. I bought 4 to take car of a saggy hinge and an extra set for my other car.

    I don't know what those bushing are made of, but I broke all but one of then with my fingers. I ended up buying a pipe flange and drilling it out to the correct size that I picked up at tractor supply.
