They all wear out eventually. They are cheap parts. Just get together with your buddy and work together and do both at the same time. Fairly easy fix. The big spring on the upper door hinge fell out on my blazer and thats not such an easy fix. Someday I might get around to fixing it.

Thanks Jman. I guess just normalwear and tear .....but this is coming from someone who baby's his machine more than most others. I guess once the nice weather comes around....Ill have to spend a few hours and get it done.

you could try lubricating...*snicker* lube.....anyways.....pouring on some lube helps in the long run...I have already had to replace my door hinges once...I am guessing cause my seals are bad....but I notice them squeaking every few months.....put some lube on em...and they work much better....just my little suggestion

I had this same problem, and honestly let it go too long. This was the original reason i got on this forum and I looked at the link from DaveLance and it helped tremendously. Thanks for the help. Was an easy fix I should have done awhile ago. If you haven't done it yet and the problem is starting do it before it gets worse. Thanks again.

I just got the truck on Friday but I can hear the driver's door not very happy. I'll probably do this as well and while I'm at it sand down the tiny bit of rust and clean it up with some paint as well.
