I have a 1999 chevy silverado. The drivers door hinge pins are worn and the door is loose. I have new pins and bushings from LMC. How do I remove the door to get at the hinge pins and bushings to replace them?
The trick is you dont remove the door-its welded on.You change the pins and bushings on the truck-There was 2 body styles in 99-which engine do you have?

I opted out since I dont want to send you in the wrong direstion-you have the newer style higes and havent realy found any short cuts.

Hello and Welcome to Just answer,
How long are the pins that came in the kit?
Reply to Scott K's Post: The kit came from LMC Truck. One pin is 1 13/16", the other is almost 2 inches. The instructions that came with the kit say, "remove the door then grind off the peened area on the bottom of the existing pins. Then drive them out from the bottom up". There is no access to the pins without removing the door.
Sorry for the delay,
Disconnect the door wire harness
