    <font color="green"> The door hinges are likely worn out, causing the door to sag. You can get new pins at the dealer, they take about 3 hours to install and the doors should work great again. Probably want to get new door seals too, since saggy doors tear the seals up.</font color>

    Thanks but the doors feel ok (no play when I lift on handle side) do you mean pin and bushing kits? Ive tried those on my old blazer with out any luck.

    <font color="green"> If the door lines up then you may be able to just adjust the striker. </font color>
