front door alignment

Recommended Posts

I replaced my rusted-out passenger door with a clean passenger door from a 1991 4-door cherokee. The old door had one shim in the top hinge and no shims in the bottom and it operated fine.


I used the same shim in the top hinge on the replacement door and the bottom of the door is rubbing up against the fender.


What would be the correct shim placement to correct the gap at the bottom of the door?

So I should take the top shim out?

Did I say "Take the top shim out"?


If the gap between the front edge of the door and the rear edge of the fender is about the same as it was before, and about the same as the door on the driver's side -- leave the upper shim in. If the gap at the upper hinge is much larger than it was before, take the shim out.
