Sagging driver door... wth??? I'm pissed!

So all of a sudden out of nowhere the other day, my ds door is sagging!! It takes considerable amounts of effort to close it w/out it still being propped open a bit. I can see that the latch on the front door is just a little low for the receiver on the rear supercab door. Is this normal? Is it adjustable? I cant believe this happened out of nowhere

most likely your hinge pins and bushings are worn out. You should be able to find replacements in the "help" section of you local parts store.

They're not that bad on anything. But I know on a GM you have to have a special tool for the spring.

Ya mine too.. but the thin is when I bought it, it didn't do it. A month or so later it started. I couldn't believe out of nowhere it started.

But like they said above just buy new hinges. Seemingly cheap and easy to do

I did the bushings on my little GMC. That little tool is about 5$ and the bushings are cheap.

I got the same problem, I'm going to try doing the door bushings and see if that fixes it. It seems like they're just a bit tired after 10 years of door openings and closings
