What do I need to do to replace the door hinges on the Drivers door? 1997 GC.

If I'm not mistaken they came out with a model change in 1999, here are some instructions from my old 2001 manual (same for 1999) which might be different from your 1997 but might help a bit.

HINGE
REMOVAL
(1) Open and support door.
(2) Using a wax pencil, or other suitable device,
reference mark the hinge placement
(3) Disconnect the door wire harness.
(4) Remove the door check from the “A” pillar (Fig. 7).
(5) Remove the fasteners retaining the door hinge to the door (Fig. 8).
(6) Remove the door.
(7) Remove the hinge from the “A” pillar.
INSTALLATION
(1) Position hinge on “A” pillar. (Use 3Mt Fast and
Firm or equivalent on the hinge to body mating surface as a sealant.)
(2) Install hinge to body bolts, but do not tighten.
(3) Align the hinge to the reference marks and torque the bolts to 35N·m (26 ft. lbs.).
(4) Install the door on the hinge and align with the reference marks.
(5) Tighten the door to hinge fasteners.
(6) For adjustment see door adjustment procedure.

I can pdf any pages you need.

There might be a free online manual, do a google. Let us know.

According to Body Zone, the pin & bushing can be replaced, up to the 98 model. Since that seems to be the case, all I need is to ge tthe pins & bushings along w/ a helper. I just want to make sure I ain't missing anything.
