you need to unhook any electrical connectors then knock the door pins out with a small hammer and a punch
This requires a helper, and a floor jack. Basically, you pound the pins out, a real treat without an air hammer and/or a pin removal tool. Roll the door away from the truck, as far as the wire harness will allow. Then, drive the old bushings out. Be sure you don't reinstall them up side down. They have to be pounded back in, and they are easily broken. They are made of bronze. Then, tape up the edge of the door, so it doesn't' get torn up during the reinstallation process. Roll the door up to the truck, on the jack, with the aid of your helper. Carefully guide it into position, and install the bottom pin first, top side down. This pin is the easiest to install, because you can actually see the holes line up, within reason. pound it in until the shoulder on the pin is flush. Now, install the top pin bottom side up. It will be more tricky. Once pins are in, install the round retaining clip on both pins, otherwise they will eventually back out. Using a door spring compressor, reinstall the spring.
