I replaced my bushings over 20 years ago. No locktite used. I've kept the hinges lubed and driven the car over 80k miles in that time. If I open the door and lift the rear corner... All motion is transferred to moving the car on its suspension. I can't see or feel any movement in the door hinge/pins/bushings area. That's using a 5 foot long lever (the door) which tends to magnify any motion in the hinge. A rebuilt hinge will be quite tight to rotate through its travel without the leverage of a door moving it. Hope that helps!
