i have to bend my hinges on the new door that i put on my truck because the bottom of the door sticks out. the old door did not have this problem, would i be able to get around bending the hinges by just replacing the new lower door hinge with the old lower one? i think the two trucks were different years because of different vin plates (one was blue the other black)but they are both vent windows

I believe the hinges themselves are the same. Sorry, I can't help on the adjustment. I got lucky on mine.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

well i knew that the hinges are the same, but i was wondering if the old ones that made the old door line up right would make the new door line up the same as the old door. As in the old hinges are bent the right amount due to over time or factory

once removed you may still have a problem getting them aligned again. I know its to late for now but a lot of bolters say drill small holes in the hinge/pillow and put a small roll pin in it as that is the only way to make sure hinges go back in the same place......
It seems there was a tip here in the Tech Tips section about adjusting doors? Worth a check. Let us know how you make out. Sorry I can't help any better.
