My drivers door pops and creaks really bad I have to lift up on it to get it to not make a horrible noise every time I open or close it. Is there any sort of bushings or pins maybe that can help fix the door slop and stop this metal on metal sound? I keep using white lithium grease but that's only a bandaid at this point.

I had this problem so I ordered new upper and lower door hinges from mitsubishi. I'm not sure if they're still available anymore.

I loaded them up with motor oil.  I think that was what the factory manual says to use.

Been wanting to make hardware kits for a while now to rebuild them back to new.l can pretty much reproduce any bushing pins and more on a CNC. Not sure how much interest there would be?

I still have the packages with the part numbers on them. I'll look when I get home.
