    I probably need new ones but are they adjustable? The drivers door is off a bit. Whats a good replacement not made in China.

    I dont know what year your car is, but its been my experience that aftermarket hinges may not be the best things going, even on the vintage Firebirds & Camaro's. I honestly dont know of any hinges not made offshore. Could you just put bushings in yours?

    if they are 65-early 67 i would just kit them .the kit has the pin the catch the bushings the new roller and pin and the spring for the bottom hinge . the later 67 up have a stamped hinge that is usually worn through the bushing into the hinge .the early hinges are cast iron and usually re buildable.

    It's a 66...sorry about that. It's in my signature though. Bushings are a good idea. Didn't even think of it. I'll look for the kit.

    I second the rebuild kit, mine were hammered, after installing the kit they function perfectly.
