Front doors I believe are but backs are different from what I can tell. Don't quote me on that. I can look closer for you if someone doesn't know for sure.

My doors are hanging low. Would a pin kit fix that? Ive looked at the hinge and noticed that the roller is broken on both (driver/passanger). The hinge it self is fine, it opens and closes with no problem but just the door needs to be pushed up to close tight. Where is a good place to get them?

First place I would check is the HELP! section in O'reilly Auto, Autozone, etc. for hinge kits. Usually they come with the pins, rollers, & any other related hardware. If you can wiggle your door up & down while opened then this is likely your culprit.

WOW! just installed the new pin kits, well just the drivers side since I found out how HEAVY these doors are I nearly killed myself,ha. What a huge difference, the door just swings open and shuts with one finger! The door striker loves it too, it was taking a beating before.

If the door lines up with the body OK, maybe the striker bolt on the door post needs to be moved a bit. I just loosen them enough that they can be tapped/moved with a small hammer, to find the right spot to let the door latch work right, and inboard enough to get the door closed tight etc.

I will give that a try tomarro. The passenger side seems to open stiff as well. I have been doing little things here and there. When i got my car the steering will was all torn apart and that was fun getting it back together.
