I did check at a Ford dealership for the pins and bushings and they told me that they were not available. That is why I ended up buying the hinges instead. I also checked with Advance Auto and they could not get the pins and bushings either. I will try a different dealership for the pins and bushings to see what happens.
MWSTANG99, I went as far as to take my 2004 Mustang Mach 1 to a body shop (CollisionMax) and the estimator told me the hinges for this model car are "sealed"(his word) and you cannot replace the hinge pin/bushings. You can get the hinges top/bottom from Ford. One is $37 and the other is $51... can't remember which one cost what. After I replace my hinges I'll post again....pogo619
I have yet to find a dealer that sells pins and bushings for the 94+, but they are not sealed units, you can get the pins for a Fox and drill the hinges slightly, a little bit of a pain, but much cheaper.
For year models 99-04 Coupe (i did not check convertibles) you have to replace the entire hinge. For some reason, these models do not come with removable pins/bushings. It is an all-in-one deal. They run about $35 for the top one and $55-60 for the lower (the one with the rubber roll).
Like some others have posted, you could modify the current hinges to allow for the older pins and bushings to work, but personally I feel mods only bring more problems.
