Question Door Hinge replacement on '07 Ion sedan

My'07 sedan has worn passenger side hinges and GM has discontinued them.
Hinges are worn to the point door touches at the bottom when closing.
I hesitate to use salvage parts cause how much better could they be ?
Does Cobalt part from a similar year sedan fit......or do I have other options ?
Seems there are no aftermarket hinges I can find and no hinge pin kits.
Thoughts ??
Thanks for any input in advance !

Expensive, haven't used these, but at least available

I don't have access to a Cobalt but it might be worth checking one, kits for those are 20 bucks.

Default Re: Door Hinge replacement on '07 Ion sedan

I just wanted to provide an update regarding hinge replacement on my 07 Ion sedan.......
New hinges are not available at dealers,pin kits arent available and Cobalt hinges dont fit.
I went to the wrecking yard and found a suitable donor with great hinges .
The upper hinge on one side and lower hinge on the other side are the same, and are marked as such.
The upper and lower door door trim need to be removed but its a few just torx screws .The upper door trim is removed to expose the top bolt of the fender, which is needed to be removed along with the bolts along the top of the fender.
The fender just gets coaxed to allow access ,and the hinge bolts are easily changed out .Dont forget to remove the debris at the bottom of the fender cavity.....there will be over 4 cups of it !!
Success......and able to move on and sell the vehicle we've had since new , to a new young family.
