Over time our vehicle’s hood hinges can take a serious beating. These hinges are responsible for holding one of the bulkiest and heaviest body panels on your truck, so it makes sense that they would wear down after all the driving we put them through. When hood hinges are working correctly and not worn out, they help to keep the hood of your vehicle steady and level. Proper fitting hinges will also ensure that there are little to no gaps and factory alignment of your hood. However, like many moving parts of your classic truck, hood hinges will begin to wear down from lateral stresses as time passes. Since hood hinges aren’t visible until we pop the hood up, this is something that is all too easy to forget about.
Hood hinges are put under a lot of stress and high mileage vehicles, as well as older cars and trucks, need to have new hinges installed as soon as the old hinges begin to wear down. Metal fatigue, which is caused by the constant forces and stress that is put onto a vehicle’s hinges, can result in stiff and less flexible hinges. Stiff hinges, are dangerous. It’s more than likely that a stiff hinge can result in damaged, bent hoods or worse, injury from hinge and spring failure. Loose hinges and worn out springs can also cause the hood of your vehicle to become misaligned or even bent.
