    Sometimes the pins get loose on the hinges...Check to see if the holes are worn, open the door and have someone lift up and down while you look...If so, replace the hinges...My .02

    Try putting a shim in the bottom hinge to kick it up. It worked for my friends 87.

    It sounds like the bushings on your hinge pins are no good. You need to remove the door from the hinges. Take a sharpe marker and outline your hinge, then remove the bolts. Have a friend help you as the door is pretty heavy. Then remove the pin from the hinge. I think the bushings will stay in the hinge. You need to knock them out. You can buy new bushing from any parts house for a few bucks. Replace the doors and your all set. Piece of cake, ask anyone here!!!!

    Also check for a cracked upper hinge.
