Is there a preference? It seems people like the stamped ones better but I have cast. I'm just curious if doors line up better with one or the other?....I'm about to buy new bushings for the hinge pins I just want to make sure.
Thanks,
Josh

67 hinges are cast iron. The stamped steel ones were used in 68. The cast iron ones tend to fail more often despite looking beefier.

Intuitively makes sense to me, generally cast metal is softer/more wear-prone than steel.
