Actually, now that I think about it, I guess what I'm really asking is how much slop does a freshly overhauled hinge have? I'd hate to go to all that work only to find out that new ones have slop close to what I have now!
Never mind, I'm gonna change them out. No time like the present while everything is all apart.
