The best cure for a sagging door is new hinge pins. I had a body shop put a set in a past T-bird of mine, only cost 50 bucks... (Ford dealer said it'd cost 500 to replace the hinges)

Seems to replace the hinges you have to remove a LOT of difficult parts... including the dashboard.

I had the same problem on my 92 and 95 birds. I couldn't get away with just a pin/bushing replacement because the holes in the hinges were egged out so I replaced the lower hinge and it fixed my problem. I didn't do the upper since the shop wanted too much to pull the dash.

I'm pretty sure that the lower hinges can be replaced without removing the dash - only the uppers require dash removal.

I can probably just do the pins and bushings. It keeps sagging down and it catches my door panel on the inside, so I guess I will do the pins and bushings. Thanks guys.

Don't forget you can adjust the hinge on the door to bring the door up. Just get a buddy and loosen the bolts holding the door to the hinge.
