Default Camaro door hinge rebuild kit

Can anyone recommend a good door hinge replacement kit for a 68 camaro?

Also, I have seen some videos on youtube showing people only replacing the top hinge bushings, is this the norm or are they possibly just not showing replacement of the bottom?

Got mine at Camaro Central: https://www.camarocentral.com/1968_1..._p/dwn-524.htm

I had a bodyshop put them on after watching install videos and not having the space in my garage, nor an extra person to help... best $250 I've spent in a long time.

Thanks guys for the recommendations. I had Heard some kits were no good for some reason.

Do you guys do both the upper and lower hinges?

I did both upper and lower with a kit. Its a 1979 Z-28 RS with power windows so you know they were worn out.

Good deal thanks.


Any tips on instilling them? I havent Really looked into it, Iím assuming just take the door off and change them or is there a more efficient way to do it?

I'd replace both upper and lower pins and bushing if you have the doors off... the kits are cheap compared to time invested in replacing the old upper/lower in the near future.

Here is a video that shows the steps that I found: https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=jgrSA-gdjx4
