Door pin question...

Need some help....The drivers door had some play at the hinge pin. I pulled the door off and one pin was visibly worn and the other looked ok. I did notice that the top pin had what looked like a sleeve/bushing that came out with it and fell apart. I got new pins, and they are loose and I cannot find a bushing anywhere. Any advice where I can get new door pin bushings? 99 TJ with full steel doors. Thanks

The bushings Otto Man posted work great, just make sure to get any and all remnants of the old bushings out of the hinge before installing the new ones. They are to expensive to screw up.

An air hammer!

The top of each pin is ribbed and there is a friction fit at the top loop of the hinge. As mentioned an air hammer works great but if you don't have that available a hammer will suffice, just drive the pin up and out. It's a good idea to place a piece of sheet metal over the body to protect the finish while going at it with a hammer. The bushings should just drop in and seat with a few taps. Make sure the hinges are clean before installing the bushings.
