    Recently, I noticed that the driver's side door on my '02 Sport Trac is not closing easily. Upon further inspection, the hinge pins are wore, causing considerable movement. New upper and lower hinges are over $250 each! Can the hinge pins be replaced on this vehicle?

    YES !!!!! there is a kit on ebay for sale.... you MUST grind out the old pins and then install the kit. it doesn't come with instructions so you need to know how to do it.... its like $60....

    good luck, keep us posted... BEST thing to do is disconnect the wore coupler by the nut on top, have a person help you REMOVE the door, then change the pins and bolt the door back on..... way easier..
