Still no luck finding one. The reason I want a different hinge is because the nylon piece that rides on the track is badly worn and causes the door to drop 1/4 inch when it opens. I had already extended the hinge by 3" to clear the 255 70R-15S on 9" Cragars but I came across a set of Mickey Thompson 12.5 in wides on 15X10s which stick out quite a bit more. So I spent most of the day yesterday extending it again by 5". It came out real nice, installed it only to find out it still doesn't clear. Does anyone know how long the extended version of the slider hinge is?

a good gm dealer should have access to them but knowing the part number would be a big help. https://www.partszoneonline.com has a very knowledgeable staff in the parts department and would be your best chance
