    You may need new pins and bushings (not fun).. You could try loosening the hinge base and raising the door slightly then tighten it back down.. But if the pins/bushings are worn the door may start to "pop/crackle" when you open it. Most likely this remedy would be temporary @ best..

    i heard that our cars dont have pins, so i checked mine out and their is no pin in their it is just like two rivets that hold the top and bottom of each hinge together. so does that mean the hinge has to be replaced? has anyone ever expeirenced the same problem if so what is the remedy.

    My doors don't sag but I have swapped doors on TA's that were hit. Just get some new hindges and put them in it's easy to align the door all you need is a friend to help hold the door steay and if you have a hydralic jack put a rag on it and use it as a rest so you can easily raise and lower the door to realign it and just have a friend hold the back straight. Also you might wanna chage the door stiker on the car since they go before hindges usually so it's probably not catching as well as it should.

    Before you change hinges check to see that the door isnt cracked. Someone leaned on my friends with the door open and put a slight crack near where the hinge bolts on.
