    Anyone have any experience with the OER door hinges? OE ones are available but fairly pricey, about $150, compared to the OER's at $55 or so. My experience with repops isn't the greatest, but have never used a repop door hinge. The one I have has a bent shaft for the detent roller, so it would need work. The kit to fix that is about $40, plus new bushing and pin kit, so I'm thinking of just replacing it. Or does anyone have a good used one (upper hinge on drivers side)?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have heard that they are only good for 5-7 years.Not the longevity as the stocker ones.
    It would prolly benefit you to find a decent used set(without the upper hole elongated)and just buy a pin replacement kit with new bushings.

    I have a new unused detent pin & roller, GM brand. Its not a kit, just the pin & roller paid 15.00 for it. I don't need it cause I ended up buying one of those OER upper hinges. The OER hinges are good, I was happy with it. If you want it let me know.
