1st Gen S10 Blazer Tool Steel Oversized Bushing Door Pin Kit Customizable
This includes 1 pin and 2 bushings.
Fits years 1982-1993 S10s
These kits are specifically made for doors in badly worn bushing holes in the hinge plate of the vehicle. Made from extremely strong and abrasive resistant tool steel, hardened, and hard-chromed, these are built to last a lifetime of abuse. Use the guide below for information on selecting the correct bushings for you.
1st Gen S10s use the same bushing for the top and bottom positions on the pin.
Standard Size Bushings: These are recommended when there is no apparent wear to the bushing hole. If all of your bushing holes are in good shape we recommend ordering the normal 1st Gen S10 Kit.
.02" Oversized Bushings: These are ideal for holes that are slightly worn where the standard size bushings would fit loosely into.
.06" Oversized Bushings: These are needed when the bushing hole has been severely worn. In cases where the hole is egg or oval-shaped, we recommend using JB Weld to fill the space around the bushing. This helps create a rigid bond to the bushing from the hinge plate.
We also recommend ordering the oversized bushing that is slightly larger than the worn holes in the hinge plate. This allows you to file, grind, or drill the holes so that the bushing can be tightly press fit into the hole.
Lastly, we recommend inspecting each one of your pins and bushings and ordering the corresponding size bushings. This product menu allows you to piece together just the components you need. This product menu is only selecting one pin at a time, this is done because its likely that all of your bushing holes are not worn all the same. You will need to add 4 pins to your cart for a full kit, or 2 for a half kit (one door).
Oversized Bushings Drill Bit Recommendations:
Small +.02": 1/2" Drill Bit
Small +.06": 17/32" Drill Bit
Large +.02": 17/32" Drill Bit
Large +.06": 9/16" Drill Bit
Note: You may still need to open these holes up slightly with a round file or die grinder. Remove a small amount of material and test fit the bushing constantly. You will want the bushing to fit in tightly.
