Removing Factory Door Pins & Installing Bushings

The easiest way to remove the factory door pins without damaging or bending the hinges is to use the Pin Removal Tool (TAI-007, TAI-008, or TAI-009). The PRT will press the factory pins out in seconds. If you use a Hammer & Punch, Air Hammer, Pin Popper, or Bushing Tool it may lead to you damaging your hinges.

Plus the PRT on some applications you can flip the tool upside down and press the New Pins in the hinges.

For installing new bushings the easiest way is to use the Bushing Press Installer (TAI-BP1) and a PRT (TAI-007, TAI-008, TAI-009). It will press the bushings in evenly and not worry about hitting the hinge. You wont need a Hammer, Punch, Pliers, Bushing Tool, or Visegrip to install bushings anymore.
