I see that there is no closure about the "door hinge bushing" method. from my googling, I found this link.

Read through it and you'll understand the bushing installation.

Got my front doors off. Currently working on taking off the back two. I might of missed it in the reading, but how are you guys disconnecting the power (wires) to the rear doors?

Oh, and it was really hard to get a hammer and a punch into there to punch out the old pins that were really pressed in. I came up with this method to remove the pins. Basically acts like a bottle jack to push them up and out. Just keep tightening the nuts and it moves the bolt head up and pushes the pin out. Works like a charm.

Fwiw you can just throw a bottle jack on a cinder block and jack the door up from underneath and they'll usually pop right out. Once they get loose it doesn't take much to get em out.
