Door hinge bushings

I've got a dumb question: Are the bushings and pins the same size for the upper and lower door hinges? I rebuilt the lower driver's door hinge, but it's looking like I need to rebuild the upper, as well. The catalogs don't seem to differentiate between the bushings.

Excellent. Thanks for the info. I did the bottom hinge on the driver's door, and there must be too much play in it still, because the spring arm wants to ride up over the stop and lock backwards if I open the door too far. I think the upper must need a little love, too.
