Driver door hinge on the 84 bluepra is worn allowing the door to sag when open. Was going to use one from my parts car, but discovered its worn pretty good too, tho not as noticeable. Haven't taken apart yet but figure this is common for the age and someone out there has dealt with it. Is it the upper or lower hinge that wears or do both need to be replaced?

Usually it's the upper one that wears out the most. You should be able to move your door upu and down and see where the play is.

I havn't had this problem with my mk2 yet(knock on wood) but in the course of restoring my chevy truck I found that NAPA had a number of different diameter pins and bushings to rebuild door hinges. Don't know what dia. we need for mk2's but HTH

I had both in the drivers door replaced last year and they are not that much. If you are replacing one then go ahead and do the other. What happens is if one goes bad the other has to work harder.

I replaced the upper door hinge on the Redpra w/ another GOOD one that I found on a Redpra in the junkyard. No more saggy door. Should have replaced the bottom one as well, but I was lazy to pull it.

And yes, new door hinge's are available from Toyota. Senor Culbertson replaced his door hinge's on Agatha & he said they don't cost that much.
