david.w.johnson I didn't even realize the doors used bushings. I never noticed them on my YJ or TJ. Took the doors off the JK to paint the hinges. One of the doors was always stiff. I cleaned out the hinge and there was some plastic in there. I figured it was a bushing at one time. I don't plan to replace them. The door works much better since I scraped the old one out. I'm pretty sure a little grease will do fine.

foxsat71 Got my door bushings from Black Magic Brakes a few days ago. Just need to install them.

Lusus_Naturae Both products are Delrin - which has a good rep for strength and durability. I have seen Delrin rods twisted into hoops and then released and they go right back to the original shape. Very good product to use for something like this which is also why it's a bit more expensive than a plain plastic.

foxsat71 Thanks for the heads up; good to know info.

Very handy. Meant to mention it.

Not gonna say its a must but it did make it easy to remove the factory bushings.

Didn't need it to put the new ones in as they just slid in.

If you use the tool I recommend spraying it with some wd40 when removing the factory bushings.

Barmanvarn Bushings arrived today. Took all of 3 minutes to install them.

Factory bushing were quite bad looking.

New bushings seem sturdy but won't know how they do until after some use.

Barmanvarn Just an update, that I did finally hear from Magnitude. They offered me a $5 discount as a WF member. I appreciated them doing that so wanted to let everyone know. I'll post a review once they arrive.

HOOCBB Wondering the same thing. My bushings are long gone.

Opinion on poly door hinge bushings?

Jeep Wrangler JK ('07&Newer) 2-Door Hinge Bushing with Installation Tool Set - Black

I sent a PM to Magnitude a few days ago, but they only seem to show up here once a week, and then only to post a new thread to this product.

So, their response time sucks but if the product is good, I'm still willing to purchase it. Anyone have a review on this or a similar product?

thanks
