Door Hinge Bushing Fit

For those of you that have replaced the bushings on your door hinges, what kind of fit have you observed on the replacement bushings of various types (plastic, metal, etc.) and from different suppliers? What did you purchase and who from? Were they too loose, too tight?

Are you referring to the Delrin bushings? Mine fit very snug. I very gently tapped them into the hinges with a plastic mallet. They don't move at all and my doors go on and off like butter. So far, after a year, they're holding up well. As far as where I purchased them, the website doesn't appear to be in business any more, but I paid $30 for mine (2 Door).

Yep I am running TMR's too.
I used a long 9mm socket to pop out the old ones.

Not sure if I should ask this here or in a new thread...

What are people using to replace the rusting out stock pins? How hard is it to remove/replace the pins?

My bushings are already delaminating and are shot. the pins are rusting (thanks New York!). Might as well do both when I pull the hinges to powdercoat them.



Edit:

What are the differences between the TMR and Magnatude bushings? Why is one more expensive?

I'm a Rochester native as well, so I used Never Seize on the hinges from day one of owning the Jeep. As far as cost of the bushings, that's all it is. Delrin is Delrin, so follow the link I posted above for TMR and they're only $30. Same as Rancho, I used a 9mm deep socket to remove the old bushings. I used a good heavy maul and with two whacks they were out. Just be sure to protect the door in case you slip with the BFH!
