What kind of replacement pin bushings/liners do you all run?

Looking at the TG right now. Anything comparable?

I like the Delrin as it should really handle the winter abuse around here and last a lot longer than OEM.

Quadratec ones. They come with a shorter install tool but I had no issues with them.

If you intend to run the Dietech mirror brackets when you go doorless you'll need to open up the bushings a **** hair (seriously, I think I used a 3/8 bit, which produced mere shavings, but then they slid in perfect). I don't know how/why but the Dietech pins are slightly bigger than the door pins. It does not cause issue with the doors alignment.

I purchased mine at TMR Customs. I did also get the tool. Yeah, it's a few more dollars (and it now pretty much sits unused in my toolbox), BUT for my two pennies worth, that thing is worth it! Using the tool, I was able to quickly hammer out all of the old junky liners without damaging the hinges or dinging the paint. Install of the new ones was as simple as line it up and press down with my thumb.

Good luck, hope this helps!

Did the quadratec ones as well, removing the old ones required some PB blaster. Also would recommend some extra sanding on the old door pins and some grease or anti-seize just to protect them.

Yea. Forgot to mention that. Needed a good deal of sanding on door pins. Was an oversight on my part. Tried putting doors back on without sanding. Oops.

I looked at the Quadratec ones too and wondered about them. I know the tool would never be used again but looks worth the money

I use the Delrin, also. Did all 8 bushings with about $5 worth of Delrin rod.
