you should probably go look for the whole hinge at a junk yard.

NAPA has the bushings...or at least they did 3 years ago. Go to their "Help" rack and look for Nissan truck bushings. They are not exact for the Sentra but do work.

Go to a dealer and buy new hinges. Don't fear the dealer. fear what can happen to your door latch when you don't fix it right the first time.

I'm really upset, my drooping door has ruined the strike plate and it cost $95 to get that welded and I still need to have the hinges done.

Do I really have to suck it up that it will be a $90 job to come just for parts alone?

Is there any way to stop the door from drooping without replacing the hinges and can replacing the hinges be a do it yourself job?

How about hinges from a junkyard? Has anyone had a successful go of this?

So let me get this right....you spent $95 to get a piece welded but your still not willing to spend the $90 to do the job right and never have to worry about it again? Thats just frickin stupid.

I don't know what is so difficult to understand. Yes, I spent $95 to weld the striker back into place. That was a job that was essential. There was no other way to have a door that shuts without a rigid and stable striker plate.

I don't want to pay another $90 in parts to finish this job, especially if people have been able to fix the problem with a $5 hinge repair kit available at the auto parts store.

I own a 1993 Nissan Sentra, clearly chances are I'm strapped for cash.

There is no need for rudeness.

Now all I have to do is find out where to get this hinge repair kit. The part number that was listed in another thread is not stocked at any of the stores I checked.
