    You should have changed the bushings w/ the top on. It would have helped keep everything lined up. Did you replace all the stock body mount shims in the right spot? You will need to shim the body till it is straight.

    Time to shim it then. Loosen up all the body mount bolts and add shims (most likely under the doors and to the rear) till the doors both open and close. Then tighten up the bolts.
    I need to do this to my truck sometime...

    are your rocker boxes rusted out? if they are, that causes the windshield frame to lean back and makes the doors stick.
