170 Door Hinges was created by McFarlane Aviation
As most of you with a Cessna 170’s know, replacement hinges have been almost impossible to locate. Often, if used hinges were found they were little better, maybe even worse than the one’s you wanted to replace. They were also hard to get from Cessna and very expensive. I am happy to report that 170 door hinges can now be found on McFarlane’s web-site. The hinges are FAA-PMA Approved. Multiple improvements are listed including thicker steel, pre-drilled holes and epoxy primer. The web-site also lists a great tip in regard to door seals which I have pasted below.

Additionally, to try and prevent having to replace your door hinges in the first place, consider this; Cessna doors have tremendous leverage on the forward door seals, door hinges and hinge pins can easily be over stressed and fail if incorrect door seals are installed. Make sure you always use approved door seals designed for your aircraft to prevent you from even needing a new door hinge or hinge pin.
