I have had these for several years now. one negative of them. the roll pins in the hinge tend to slide downward and fall out. so you have to pop the door panel off, and slide the roll pin back in place. I took and turned the roll pin so I could get a screwdriver in the split in the roll pin. then hammered it to open up the split. so far, haven't had the pin slide back down YET. on my drag car, (79 spirit) I also run these, and I took my welder and just put a small tack weld on either end of the roll pin. they are long enough you can do that, and if you (for some reason) needed to pull them apart, you can grind the weld off still. other than the pin moving, they are WAY better than the stock door paddles.
