I bought my pins and bushing at Advanced Auto for about $10 and they work fine. They're found in the accessories aisle or just ask one of the sales reps for help finding them. The one's I used are plain universal GM hinge pins and bushings.
the reason i got them from ebay was that the bottom bush on mine was wallerd out a mite and the kit had oversize bushes that took care of that problem.
