    Look in the "help" section at your local auto parts place and get some new hinge pins/bushings. I paid about $10 to do both doors on mine

    What he said. Plus, you can make them into quick release pins now while you have them off.

    my uncle ran the crap out of my K20 until the body bushings departed! he drove it for years with the cab sagging 3" and never thought twice, well, the doors really took a beating from the cab being tweaked. So, when i put the new bushings in it made the doors not line up right. Check to see that your body bushings are all OK, that could lead to your doors sagging. I've never had a problem with my doors on the '73, and that sees double use everytime I drive it from my brother.
