Door Hinge Bushing Fit

For those of you that have replaced the bushings on your door hinges, what kind of fit have you observed on the replacement bushings of various types (plastic, metal, etc.) and from different suppliers? What did you purchase and who from? Were they too loose, too tight?

I bought these http://www.tmrcustoms.com/store/inde...oducts_id=2034

You have to remove the old metal liners from the hinges first. They weren't too difficult to get out, I just used a flat head screw driver and a hammer and carefully pounded them out from the bottom (that's what she said).
The new liners work amazing! No need to grease them up anymore. The doors come out very easily now.

I got delrin bushings and the doors slide on and off easily. The site I bought them from no longer appear to have them (it was a group buy) so I can't link it.

I dont know where I got my plastic ones but getting my old metal ones out was a PIA. For the front doors the bushings work great, my rear doors they are still a little tight. I put some silicon spray on them and its not problem.

Eyeballing my pins it does appear that some are slightly bigger on the rear doors which might be the issue. Maybe I should invest in new pins

They have them here. They're just more than what I paid.
