Default Door rollers

Anyone know of a place that carries replacement rollers for our upper door hinges? Or do I have to replace the whole hinge?

i know @one time napa did sell a kit to replace the roller assy only i did it on my brothers pick up.in my opinion its easier to pull the hinge to do the work.the way i look at it,if you need to replace the roller,the pin and bushings might need some attention also.I'd use it as a good time to do those too.with the hinge off the car.

Pins and bushings were done a few years ago. I should have done the roller at the same time but got stupid and didn't.

Just looked at Napa's site and they only list the pins and bushing not the roller.

Thanks! If you can't find any I figure my only options would be find a 4 door and get them from the rear doors hoping they will be in good shape or make my own. Neither idea would be fun.

No problem. I tried looking at my Caballero parts book but couldn't find it. I need to look again. Worst comes to worse I could always just remove it since for the most part to me it's not important.
