Anyone know how to raise a door?

Working on a 76 Overlander. Getting the bent door back into shape and itís starting to fit perfectly but needs to go up a little. If I lift up a little at the hinge, it fits perfectly. Do they sell hinge spacers / bushings to raise the door up on the pin a few millimeters? Or do I need to pop the pin out somehow and put a washer in?

This is the part you can use (or cut similar from a nylon washer)

This thread is a pretty good discussion of the problem

Thanks guys! Iíll do the e-clips since an actual washer / spacer would require pulling the pin. Cheers!

You can make a "C" washer with nylon or delrin of exactly the right thickness (easy with a lathe) or manually by sanding. Just make the slot slightly more narrow then the diameter of the pin and it will snap on like an e-clip and stay there.
