        My drivers side door is sagging 2005 Ex. When it is closed it is in it's proper place but when the door is opened, it sags. When closing, it first hits the black piece which lifts it into the correct position. When I have a friend lift the door I can see no movement at the hinge which makes me think there is no point in replacing the hinge pins. I've heard doing a door adjustment can lead to other problems.

          If you can jiggle the door in the open position you have a hinge issue. Either pins or loose bolts.

        hey, i need some help with my ranger, i wrecked it, but am fixing it.... basically i need advice on bending back the frame horns, also, since i will be doing extensive front end work, i would like to disconnect the airbag system to prevent possible deployment...

        the front radiator support pushed back a couple inches, i was able to pull it out an inch with a ratchet strap and my just pulling on it.... i plan on tieing it to my other truck and pulling harder...... what do you think of this? the framerails look cool, the frame horns the bumper mounts to are toast though, but i want to reuse them, how can i bend them back into shape?
